Apple Activity with Cubes ~Free Printables

We haven’t had an Apple Theme week in our homeschool in years. I decided it was time to have some apple activity fun this week with Ladybug for Kindergarten. I printed many apple activities from other sites and made these simple apple cube printables for us to use.

Apple Cube Printables



Years ago I made a pumpkin cube printable just like these, which is in our Pumpkin Printable Pack.  Many have asked me to make more of these and finally I have more for you!

Apple Activity Using Cubes

 

I made an A is for Apple and an Apple Tree.

A is for Apple Activity Using Cubes

Our Color Cubes set didn’t have enough greens to make the tree, nor does it have brown.  Thankfully Unifix Cubes are about the same size, so we used those for the tree!  You can use Unifix Cubes for both if you don’t have the Color Cube set.

Don’t have either?  Use the outline version and color the squares in, use colored stickers, or even dot paint!

Apple Tree Activity Using Cubes

 

This activity provides young kids the opportunity to practice spatial visualization skills in recreating the pattern using cubes. Older kids can look at the pattern and recreate OFF of the printable to make it more challenging.

Both activities will be set up on trays for her to work on!  I pre-counted the cubes and colors for her and placed those on the tray with the printable. Once she copies the patterns on the printable, I will encourage her to try to recreate on the table next to the printable.

You can see I chose to use the outline version to save on ink, but there is a solid color version also if you prefer that.  The solid color version would be easier for younger tots.

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter F

RLRS Letter F Matthew 4 Bible Verse Printables

 

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter E are available to download for free!  F is for FOLLOW! This set is based on Matthew 4:19, “Come, follow me, Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men” 

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it.

I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter L right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter F. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

She loves the coloring page. She likes to make it match.

RLRS Letter F -0269

 

 

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Ff

Since she dislikes this page for now, we used Wikki stix for the middle set of letters, and she happily wrote the last set of letters and colored the first!

RLRS Letter F -0316 RLRS Letter F -0317

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram. Here is  our home banner!

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter F in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

Seeds Family Worship also has a wonderful version of this verse on their CD Seeds of Purpose, it’s #11 “Fishers of Men.” See it here on Amazon!

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.

Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables ~ The Dog Who Had Kittens

The Dog Who Had Kittens Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables



Our next Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack is ready!  I continue to develop literature unit studies behind the scenes and am excited to share our next free printable unit with you.

A few have asked if I am going in the order the books are listed here on the blog, and the answer is NO.  I am going in random order and that list is not set in stone.  On the website here, at the bottom, I will share the next 2 books I am working on so you’ll have a bit of notice in case you need it.

The Dog Who Had Kittens is a favorite book of Ladybug’s, featuring Eloise the cat and Baxter the dog.  I had never heard of this book until it showed up in a stack of books someone gave us. It is on the longer side, so you’ll want to snuggle up if you plan to read this each day during the unit.  This is a sweet story and a great one if you have a dog or cat lover like I do!


In this printable unit you will find a sample lesson plan.  I provide a lesson plan idea, but even I probably won’t follow this, it is just an idea.  Make this work for you and your child!

lesson plan

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose patterns, days of the week, story problems, and graphing.

sorting dogs and cats   days of the week printable

Basic Story Problems   Graphing Dog Breeds

Lots of literacy activities; Letter D sound, sequencing the story, comprehension questions, writing, and sight word work.

What Begins with D   Story Sequencing

Comprehension   Sight Words

Writing

For our Science focus, children will describe the particular features of a Basset Hound {we will try to grab a non-fiction book about Basset Hounds for this activity too}, and also sort adult/baby animals.

Describe a Basset Hound   Sorting Adult and Baby Animals

The character connection is focused on being grateful, as Eloise learned to be in the end.

Being Grateful
