to start learning early addition problems.  Take some  apples that
have small equations written on one side and the answers on the
other.  Print your apples from a template, cut from construction
paper or pick up a pack of pre-cuts from the dollar store.  

Then perhaps while you're playing "fruit stand" or "store", you
can talk with your child about how these are very special apples,
and if you want to have them for your store, you have to figure
out each one's secret number!  Then let them go through the
apples and add to their stores collection.
