I use this felt set to retell Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr Seuss
First I put the dog, the lion and the tiger on the felt board.
Then I read the first page of the book and demonstrate how to use the apples to follow the story.
The children quickly take over adding apples as each page is read.
This set enables lots of discussion about counting and lots of co-operation.
Ten Apples Up on Top Felt Set is available in the Felt Board Magic Store
The pattern for Ten Apples Up on Top can be found in the Apple Harvest Felt Board Pattern eBook
