Apple Song List

A Little Appleseed
Sing to: Itsy, Bitsy Spider

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






All Around the Apple Tree 
Sing to: Mulberry Bush

Here we go round the apple tree, the apple tree, the apple tree.
Here we go around the apple tree,
On a frosty morning.

More verses:
This is the way we climb the ladder
-pick the apples
-wash the apples
-peel the apples
-cook the apples




Apple Adjectives

For language arts incorporation, make 11 apples using some of my freebie mini pack printables or make your own. Then write the following apple adjectives, one on each apple:

crisp. crunchy, smooth, round, green, shiny, fresh, sour, red and sweet.
Pick a child to point to an apple adjective and read it. Next sing the word to the tune of BINGO.

I have an apple in my hand and it looks very crisp.
C-R-I-S-P,

Apple is it's Name
To go along with the song make single apple cards  using one of my mini packs above or your own apple cut-outs. Make five cards with a whole apple on the front.  Write 'a' on one apple, 'p' on another, 'p' on the 3rd apple, 'l' on the 4th, and e on the 5th. On the back of the 'a' card put an apple with one bite cut out of it. On the back of the first 'p' card put an apple with two bites cut out of it. Continue with three, four, and five bites. As you sing the song have your babes turn over the apple cards to reveal the bites.

Apple Game List


Apple Counting
Glue a felt tree shape to each of five cardboard squares. Write a number from 1 to 5 under each tree. Cut fifteen apple shapes out of felt. To play the game, have the children take turns identifying the numbers below the trees and placing the corresponding numbers of apples on them.

Apple Shaped Math Mats

This game may be played with an entire class or just a few children. Make as many of these Apple mats as your class needs, one for each child. Cut out a large apple shaped piece out of red, green or yellow felt, a stem out of brown felt, a leaf out of green felt the later two size appropriate. Glue them onto each apple. Out of white felt cut out a star shaped section and glue in the middle of each apple. For seeds, you can either cut out 12 seeds for each apple from black felt, or you can use real seeds or black beads. 
Children roll a die and place that number of seeds in each section. Then write the addition or multiplication problem that represents the number of seeds in that apple.


Counting Apple Seeds
Cut out 10 red and 10 yellow tagboard apples. On each of the yellow draw one to ten seeds in the center using a black marker. Number the red apples from one to ten identify the number on the red apples and place on the yellow apples. Laminate them. Have the children match the corresponding apple numbers.

 Hungry Monster
Make a monster with a big mouth opening out of a box. Then tell a story about the apple monster who lives in a far away orchard. This monster is so hungry he has to be fed with apples or he will eat us up. Have your babes roll apples into the monster's mouth. The one who feeds the monster the most apples wins!






Orchard Relays

Materials Needed:
Large Trees
Apples
Bowls
Tape
Timer 

Directions:
Make a large tree, one for each child or team. Next give each child an apple made from red, green or yellow construction paper or tag board. Laminate them. Have them write their names and something they are thankful for onto their apples. Divide class into teams. The teams line up in single file, opposite their tree. Between the teams and their trees is a simple obstacle course with four or five obstacles. There could be a table to go under; chairs to weave in and out of; an old blanket to wriggle under or a skipping rope to jump over - the choice is yours! Place the cut out apples in a bowl, one for each child. Set a timer and on the GO, the children or teams will grab an apple from their bowl, run the obstacle course to their tree, tape the apple on, then race back to tag off to the next player on their team or gets another apple and repeats until all their apples are taped on their tree. First child or team to place all their apples onto their apple tree is the winning team!





Pass the Apple
Play "Pass the Apple" like hot potato. When the music stops, whoever is holding the apple, goes into the "apple pot" which is the center of the circle. When all the "apples" are in the pot, have your babes make applesauce. Stir (children turn), add sugar, add cinnamon, etc, to taste(children shake). When baking, your babes will giggle a lot when they start to bubble.




Apple Jump Rope Rhyme List

Apple Cider Sticks

Apple cider sticks,
It makes me sick,
It makes my heart go two forty six,

Not because I'm dirty,
Not because I'm clean,
Just because I kissed a boy,
Behind a magazine,

Hey girls, Wanna have some fun,
Here comes ________,
With his/her pants undone,

He/she can wiggle,
He/she can jiggle,
He/she can even do the splitz,
But I betcha 5 bucks he/she can't do this,

Close your eyes and count to 10,
If you mess up, Start all over again! 



Apple On A Stick
Apple on a stick, apple on a stick
I can lick it all day and not get sick.
Apple in a cup, apple in a cup
I can drink it all day and not fill up.
Apple in a crunch, apple in a crunch
I can eat it all day, it is so good to munch
Apple in a cake, apple in a cake
I can eat it all day with no tummy ache
Apple in a pie, apple in a pie
I can eat it all day and never cry.
Apple in a dish, apple in a dish
I can eat it all day, it's so delish!

 
This is the way we recited the above jump rope rhyme when I was a child in the 50's & 60's:

Apple on a stick,
It makes me sick,
It makes my stomach go two forty six,

Not because it's dirty,
Not because it's clean,
Not because I kissed a boy,
Behind a magazine.

Hey girls, Here comes ________ (name of a girl)
In a tight, tight skirt.

She can wiggle,
She can wabble,
She can even do the splitz,
But I betcha 5 bucks he/she can't do this,

Jump out, then back in and count until you miss. Then the next child jumps to the rhyme.



Grandpa's Apple Farm
I went down to grandpa’s farm,
Billy goat chased me round the barn.
Chased me up the apple tree,
Butted the tree to get at me.
How many apples round and red,
Fell on that old billy goat’s head?
1, 2, 3, etc.
