Having trouble finding time to take your kids to the local apple orchard? Don’t worry, follow these easy steps and you’ll be picking apples in your backyard in no time, while also teaching your kids about the letters of the alphabet.

Apple Picking For Literacy

Cut out apple shapes in red and green construction paper. You can find simple apple cut out shapes at Michael’s for $2. Next write the letters of the alphabet on each apple and use pipe cleaners to hang them on the branches of the tree. Finally have your kids go outside and pick the apples, but in the order of the alphabet.
