Ten Red Apples – Adding and Subtracting

Ten Red Apples Felt Board Magic

Ten Red Apples—Adding and  Subtracting

The apples subtract from the tree and add up on the ground

So many opportunities to discuss counting up and counting down. Using felt apples to show increases and decreases provides an opportunity to learn using concrete visual materials.

Ten red apples hanging in a tree

The juiciest apples you ever did see

The wind came by with an angry frown,

(make wind blowing sound)

And one red apple came tumbling down.

(tumble one apple to the ground)

Now one red apple is on the ground!

Nine red apples hanging in a tree

The juiciest apples you ever did see

The wind came by with an angry frown,

(make wind blowing sound)

And one red apple came tumbling down.

(tumble one apple to the ground)

Now two red apples are on the ground!

Eight red apples  hanging in a tree…

Seven red apples  hanging in a tree…

Etc…

One  red apple hanging in a tree

The juiciest apples you ever did see

The wind came by with an angry frown,

(make wind blowing sound)

And the  last red apple came tumbling down.

(tumble one apple to the ground)

Now ten red apples are on the ground!
