Apple Tree Equations

I'm a little behind on life...pregnancy will do that to you, haha!  Last week we had "apple week" in first grade and did a whole multitude of fun apple-themed activities.  We did a fun directed drawing, a bunch of activities from my All About Apples packet, and as a big finale activity we made a batch of applesauce.  Yum!

My first graders are starting to learn about addition equations and I knew I wanted to tie that into our fun apple theme.  Here is what I came up with!


A cute little introduction to adding with three addends, using apple trees. The three different colors of apples helped us keep our addends straight.  This was a super simple, yet effective and fun, apple activity.  You just need a few colors of construction paper and some colored dot stickers (like these).
