Apple Songs


Apples

SONG- Tune: Twinkle, twinkle little star. . .

Apples juicy, Apples round,

On the the tees and on the ground.

Apples yellow, Apples red,

Apple juice or pie and bread.

Apples crunchy, Apples sweet,

Apples are so good to eat!


I came across this song and the kids loved it. Sing to Yankee Doodle

Peel an apple, Cut it up, Cook it in a pot.
When you taste it you will find, It’s applesauce you’ve got!


Apple Tree fingerplay

Apple tree, apple tree all the apples fell on me
I won’t cry and I won’t shout if the apples knock me out!!


Way up High in the apple tree,

A little brown worm smiled at me.
I winked my eye, And what do you suppose?
A shiny, red apple dropped on my nose

“1 little 2 little 3 little Apples” (to the tune: 1 little 2 little 3 little Indians)

1 little 2 little 3 little apples,
4 little 5 little 6 little apples,
7 little 8 little 9 little apples, on my apple tree.

Munch little, munch little, munch little apples
Crunch little, crunch little, crunch little apples
Bunch of little, bunch of little, bunch of little apples,
Good for you and me!


The Farmer Plants the Seeds (tune: Farmer in the Dell)

The farmer plants the seeds,
The farmer plants the seeds, Heigh-o-the-derry-o,
The Farmer plants the seeds. (Each child stoops down when planted).

2. The sun begins to shine. 3. The rain begins to fall. 4. The plant begins to grow. 5. The roots begin to grow. 6. The stem begins to grow.


Johnny Apple seed:

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.
Apple on the tree, what a saucy fellow.
Hanging from you branch so h-i-g-h!
Falling in my basket for an apple pie.
Apple on the tree. (Chant) You are good for me!


Apple Song: (Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

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


Way up high in the apple tree
2 big apples smiled at me
I shook that tree as hard as
I could And d-o-w-n came the apples
M-mm they were good!


(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.

(Children squat and pretend to pick up the apples, throwing them into the air.)

Pick the apples, throw them up,
Throw them up, throw them up.
Pick the apples throw them up
Up to the sky!


(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 apples everywhere! (extend arms)
Apple tree turn around
Apple tree touch the ground.


“Apple Off My Tree” (sung to Skip To My Lou)

Pick some apples off my tree,
Pick some apples off my tree,
Pick some apples off my tree,
Pick them all for you and me.
“My Apple Tree” (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?


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

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