Apple Theme ABC Tracing Strips

ABCs are something you can work on all year long. I know that we are always working on tracing our letters many different ways. Septembers Free Homeschool Deals printable are some Apple Themed ABC tracing Strips.

They are something that would work great with my Apple ABC Find.

I have loads of apple activities on the site and it would also work well with my Apple Activities Pack!

These are great for later PreK and Kindergarten. You can use just the letters you are looking for or the whole set. They are great for the fall season.

I recommend cutting and laminating the strips to use them over and over. You can use a hole punch to make a hole in the circle and put them on a ring. It also makes them easy to store.

What you will find in these printables:

  • All 26 Letters
  • Apple Theme
  • Uppercase and lowercase tracing together
  • Exmaple of how you trace each letter
  • Spot to put strips on a ring
  • 6 pages of printables

Fun And Easy To Use: Ways To Add Up To 20!

When you are learning addition there are many different ways to learn it. I’ve added several math addition tools to help kids over the years. One of my favorites has been the Ways to Add Up to Up to 20!

It is a fun printable that can be used as a no-prep printable or make into a fun hands-on learning center.

You can mix it up for whatever works for your needs.

FREE Fun And Easy To Use: Ways To Add Up To 20 - 2 types of printable 44 pages total - 3Dinosaurs.com

The idea of this printable is simple you figure out all the ways to add up to that number. There are spots on each page that will have all the ways you could add up to the number.

There are two types of the printable. One has gumballs in the center kids can use to help them add up to the number.

The second type has no gumballs and is blank. This allows you to turn it into a hands-on math activity for them. We used LEGOs to show the different ways we could add up to the number. You can start with all of them and slowly move one LEGOs to another group to show how it changes. You could also use unifix cubes or mini pompoms.

One fun way we have used these is to use LEGOs to stack them up to show the ways to add. This makes it visual and hands-on for kids. We used the bookmarks to help with the equations the first time.
