Apple Songs And Poems For Preschoolers


Chant

Oh, the Lord is good to me, And so I thank the Lord, For giving me the things I need, The sun, the rain, the apple seed, The Lord is good to me, Amen!

(I change “Lord” to “world” and “Amen” to “Thank You” to fit public school curriculum).


I made up this song to go to the tune of “Robin in The Rain”

Apple on the tree may be red or yellow.
He can be such a saucy fellow.
Hanging from your branch so h-i-g-h!
Falling in my basket for a yummy pie.
Yum Yum Yum!  You are good for me!


(Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

Once a little seed was planted in the ground.
Down came the soft rain, falling all around.
Out came the sun as bright as bright could be
And that little seed grew up to be an apple tree!!


(Sung to the tune of London Bridge)

Stand holding arms above your head like branches. Move arms up and down. Encourage children to wiggle their fingers as they move.

See the apples falling down
Falling down, falling down,
See the apples falling down, Down to the ground.

Put them in a basket
A basket
A basket
Put them in a basket
For a yummy pie!


(Sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

Apple tree turn around;
Apple tree touch the ground. (bend)
See it swaying in the air; (stand swaying arms)
Apples everywhere! (extend arms)
Apple tree turn around
Apple tree touch the ground.


(sung to Skip To My Lou)

Pick some braeburns off my tree,
Pick some braeburns off my tree,
Pick some braeburns off my tree,
Pick them all for you and me.


(sung to “The Muffin Man”)

Did you see my apple tree,
Did you see my apple tree,
Did you see my apple tree,
Full of apples red?


(sung to tune of Macarena, also fits with the steps)

Apples, yummy, honey, honey.
They’re so yummy in my tummy.
Apples, yummy, honey, honey.
He-ey, they’re so yummy
YUM


(Sung to Peanut Butter and Jelly)

Chorus:
Apple, Apple Sauce
Yum
Apple, Apple Sauce
Yum

First, you take an apple
And you skin it
You skin it
And you skin it

Chorus

Then you take the apple
And you chop it
You chop it
And you chop it

Chorus

Then you take the apple
And you squish it
You squish it
And you squish it

Chorus

Then you take the sauce
And you eat it
You eat it
And you eat it

Chorus
