If you are planning some apple days with your students, these Apple Shapes Tracing Pages will add extra fun to your apple themed lessons.
How to Use the Apple Shapes Tracing Pages
You can simply print the pages and let your student trace the – shapes with a crayon, pencil, or marker.
However, if you want to reuse the pages, laminate them or use them with Dry Erase Sleeves or page protectors and a dry erase marker.
If your student isn’t ready to write, your student can use a variety of manipulatives to “trace” the apple shapes. Consider using small red pompoms, red candies, WikkiStix, red yarn, red buttons, or whatever you have on hand. Let your student line up the manipulatives around the edge of the shapes.
Here is a sample Apple Tracing Page that uses WikkiStix to “trace” the shapes.
