Counting to 20 Seesaw and Google Slides Apple Activities for Kindergarten

These Kindergarten Google and Seesaw could be the perfect apple unit activity for your math centers, or used for any time of the year because well…apples are delicious!

One of the goals in Kindergarten is to get our children excited about learning new concepts and establishing how we will use these concepts and ideas in our future education. Math can sometimes be an unpopular subject with students. Try providing our little learners with ways to ‘play’ with math, touch, manipulate and visualize different math concepts by using real apples or apple manipulatives. Using fun apple theme activities is a great way to get kids engaged.
