Apple Activities for Kindergarten

Every September, we dedicate one week as “Apple Week.”  We start the week by reading apple books and learning about apple production.  Then, the apple festivities begin!  In this post, I’ll share some of my favorite apple activities for kindergarten.  These activities can all be found in my Apple Activities Bundle.  They are also sold individually.

Apple Test Taste

Apple Test Taste

The apple test taste is one of the kids’ favorite activities.  I like to have my students sample three types of apples.  Most years, I’ll do Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, and Granny Smith.  You can have the students donate the apples if possible.  After the kids try all three kinds, they can vote on their favorite.  This is a great time to introduce graphing.  Create a graph on chart paper titled “Our Favorite Apples.”

Apple Writing

After your students have decided on the apple they like best, I have them complete this Apple Writing Activity.  Students write their names and the color of the apple they prefer.  I have them write in pencil first and then trace in black marker.  Last, I have the kids color the top and bottom portions of the apple to match the color word in their writing.  I collect the papers and use them to create one of our first bulletin boards of the year.

Apple Writing Ideas

Apple Bulletin Board

To create your apple bulletin board, you can find my We Like Apples bulletin board lettering FREEBIE in the Kindergarten Korner Free Resources Library.

Apple Bulletin Board

I print the lettering onto red, green, and yellow astrobrights and display it along the top of the board.  Next, I arrange the pages below to display the students’ work.

Apple Class Book

When it’s time to change the bulletin board, I take down the writing and place the pages into sheet protectors in a binder.  I add the cover to the clear window, and we have an Apple Class Book for our library.  You can read more about why I LOVE creating class books in kindergarten HERE!
