Apple Subtraction Stories

Everything is cuter with an apple theme, isn't it?

Here was a super quick little math activity I did with my kids to practice starting with the whole when we subtract.

I just drew a tree onto paper and copied it. Then they colored their tree. Then we used old-school bingo dotters to add the apples.  The green ones weren't the most beautiful, so I tried to improvise with the hand-drawn circles. Next time I will probably have them just color in a lighter green.
 Some of my stronger writers wrote their own sentences, and some of my strugglers just filled in the  sentence frame.

If you're interested in the documents, just click on them to download.  Happy apple season!


  1. Hi ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
