Therapy: Apple Picking (September)

"What's in your box, Mrs. Elizabeth?"


So, I'm here today to share some organization tips and tricks, some free printables, and some links to great resources for Apple Picking!

First off, I use tote boxes by season.  I use these very cute Monthly Labels and have 4 boxes: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.  I change them out in the back of my car every 3 months and always have my evaluation box with me.



  • Visual Schedule (I use this with children whether we are face to face or in teletherapy format)


In  September, my box usually has the following: 
  • Task boxes and file folder games. For my more concrete learners, I also typically use a "Finished Box" to the right. 
    • This is a cute little Apple Picking game. It's also free on TpT!

    • Apples Following Directions Game {FREE}
    • This one is a cute set of task boxes for different seasons.  It has preschool, kindergarten, and special education tasks.  It takes some work to put together, but it's a nice resource to have on hand!
    • Basic Skills Task Boxes (pre-k, and SPED) BUNDLE


  • Adaptive Books:  The one pictured below is perfect for apples.  It's a fun free adaptive book.

  • Here is a one page vocabulary sheet for fall.  
  • Fall Vocabulary One Page Printable (No Prep)
  • This is a cute fall themed yes/no question set.  It's also a freebie from TpT.  
  • Fall Activity -  Yes No Questions for Speech Therapy FREE

  • It corresponds to this game on Boom Learning.  Apple Picking: Fall Vocabulary.  



  • For articulation, I like using the Bundle of Apple Picking games. These are Boom Cards and cover 82 different sound targets.  


  • Books for Purchase:  You have to check out 3 Dinosaurs.  There are lots many resources, including book companions for the "Old Lady" series.  I usually incorporate at least one "Old Lady" book each month.  For fall, you could use The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly or Cow.  There is also a version with a pirate called There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Map.  
Ten Apples up on Top is a classic by Dr Seuss.

It never hurts to dress up and have fun!

  • Two of my favorite games for fall: Sneaky Snacky Squirrel and Sorting Apples.  
      • Sneaky Snacky Squirrel targets colors, counting, etc.  
      • Apple Sorting is great for learning attributes like sizes and colors.


  • Coloring Pages: Here is a freebie from my TpT store.  You can click to download.  You can also access many other free activities, printables, and items for sale at my store on the right hand side of this page.
