This simple poem about apples doesn't overwhelm, and is a great introduction to interactive text. It's easy to print out and add to a class binder of poems, or display on an interactive white board. There are multiple pages where I've omitted a word from the poem. Can your students identify the missing words?
To include a counting component for math, I've added pages where you can dictate how many apples should be added to the apple tree. Students can draw/color, or use a small apple die cut, or even paint apples on to the tree!
