Extending this activity

  • -Make an apple pie together! Cooking is a great way to reinforce mathematics. Not only can the child help you measure the ingredients, he or she can also 'read' the numbers in the recipe.

    -Read "Apple Farmer Annie" by Monica Wellington. Count all the different recipes she makes with her apples.

Adjust for an older child

Ask additional questions such as "How many more red apples do I have than yellow? Which apples do I have in the same amount?"

Adjust for a younger child

Apples come in many colors. Ask the younger child which color he or she sees the most. Have the child count out five apples in that color.
