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

Here we go round the apple tree,
The apple tree, the apple tree.
Here we go round the apple tree,
So early in the morning.

Verse 3: This is the way the little seed sprouts.
Verse 4: This is the way it grows to a tree.
Verse 5: This is the way the flowers blossom.
Verse 6: This is the way the apples grow.
Verse 7: This is the way the apples are picked.

Sherry sent in this cute apple song below. Thanks, Sherry!

Apple Song
(Sung to the tune of "Have You Ever Seen a Lassie")

Have you ever seen an apple, an apple, an apple
Have you ever seen an apple, that grows on a tree?
A red one, a yellow one, a red one, a yellow one
Have you ever seen an apple, that frowns on a tree?

***********************************

APPLES

Apples here (point to yourself)
Apples there (point away)
Apples are growing everywhere (hands form a circle...the world)
Some are high (point up)
Some are low (point down)
You will see apples wherever you go (point to eyes)
Apples on the left (extend left arm)
Apples on the right (extend right arm)
You will see (point to eyes again)
Both day and night (Hands together and head down on them)

Sent to me by Kandi! Thanks!!

***********************************

APPLE TREE

Way up high in the apple tree (stretch arm up high)
Two red apples smiled at me (hold up 2 fingers)
I shook that tree as hard as I could (make a shaking motion)
Down came the apples, (make a downward motion)
Mmmm--were they good! (smile and rub stomach)

Crystal wrote and told me she sings this "fingerplay" to the tune of "Twinkle, twinkle, Little Star". Thanks, Crystal!

***********************************

APPLE TREE

This is the tree
With leaves so green.
(make leaves with fingers outstretched)
Here are the apples
That hang inbetween.
(make fist)
When the wind blows
(blow)
The apples will fall,
(falling motion with hand)
Here is the basket to gather them all.
(use arms to form basket)

***********************************

Sing to the tune: I'm a Little Teapot

I'm a little apple, short and round,
I make a munchy, crunchy sound,
If you bite into me you will see -
I'm delicious as can be!

Christina sent in this great apple song. Thanks, Christina!

***********************************

Apple Dramatics

Have the students create apple puppets with an apple cutout and a popsicle stick. Have them sing the following song while five students at a time act it out. As each one is eliminated, they sit down.
Sung to "Five Little Monkeys"

Five little apples swinging in a tree
I sure wish one would fall to me
One fell down
And hit the ground
Now how many apples do you see?

Keep singing until all apples have fallen.

Amy sent in this idea. Thanks, Amy!

***********************************

Apple Butter
(sung to tune of "A peanut sat on the railroad track")

An apple sat on the railroad track,
its heart was all a flutter.
Around the bend came number 10,
and smoosh smoosh, Apple butter.

Thanks, Cecilia!

***********************************

Apples and Bananas

I love to eat, eat, eat
apples and bananas
I love to eat, eat, eat
apples and bananas

I love to ate, ate, ate
apples and bananas
(say with the long A sound)
I love to ate, ate, ate

"It's a great song when your kids are already acting silly. It's also good for teaching the long vowel sounds." sent in by Jessica--thanks!

***********************************

Apple
(Tune: "BINGO")

I know a fruit that grows on trees,
An apple is its name, oh!
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E
An apple is its name, oh!

In summer and in early fall
It's time to pick an apple!
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E

It may be sweet or may be tart,
It's red, or green, or yellow!
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E

A McIntosh or Granny Smith,
A Winesap or Delicious!
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E

Make applesauce or apple juice
Or apple pie with apples!
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E
A-P-P-L-E


Apples

Apples in the attic,
Apples in the hall.
Apples in the summer,
Apples in the fall.
Apples make you healthy.
Apples make you tall.
I will eat some apples.
I will eat them all.


Apples

Apples, apples,
One, two, three,
Apples for you,
Apples for me.
Apples big,
Apples small,
Apple trees tiny,
Apple trees tall.
Apples sour,
Apples sweet,
Apples, apples,
are nice to eat.


I Like Apples

Red apples,
Big apples,
Good apples,
Yummy apples,
Any kind of apples,
I like apples!

An apple on the tree,
An apple in the basket,
An apple in the fridge,
An apple in a store,
I like apples!


If I Were An Apple

If I were an apple
And grew on a tree
I think I'd drop down
On a nice boy like me.
I wouldn't stay there
Giving nobody joy
I'd fall down at once
And say, "Eat me, my boy."


The Apple Star

Take an apple round and red.
Don't slice down
Slice through instead.
Right inside it you will see
A star as pretty as can be!

Take an apple round and red.
Don't slice down, slice through instead.
Look inside it and you'll see,
A special star for you and me!


Apples, Apples
(Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle")

Apples juicy, apples round,
On the tree or on the ground.
Apples yellow, apples red,
Apple pie and juice and bread!
Apples crunchy, apples sweet,
Apples are so good to eat!


Have You Ever Seen An Apple?
(Tune: "Have You Ever Seen A Lassie"?)

Have you ever seen an apple,
an apple, an apple.
Have you ever seen an apple
that grows on a tree?
A red one, a yellow one,
a green one, a golden one.
Have you ever seen an apple
that grows on a tree?

***********************************

Erin writes: "In September when kids are learning all about apples, and fall, especially around Sept. 19th which is Johnny Appleseed's birthday, it is fun to teach kids the apple song. Not only is it fun to sing, but it helps the little ones learn to use music to learn and to spell."

The Apple song: (sung to Bingo)

I know a food that's good to eat
and apple is it's name-o
A P P L E
A P P L E
A P P L E
and apple is it's name-o!

All for an Apple Pie

(sung to the tune, "1 little,2 little... indians)
One little, two little, three little apples
Four little, five little, six little apples
Seven little, eight little, nine little apples
All for an apple pie
(or : All for some apple sauce)

Class can first sing as a finger play game, and latter add movement with apples
placed in a pie tin.

Sandy submitted this apple song...thanks, Mary!

Apple Song

(Sung using the apple puppet with a worm)
(Tune: 'Boom Boom Ain't it great to be crazy")

(Chorus)
YUM YUM, OH I LOVE TO EAT APPLES
YUM YUM, OH I LOVE TO EAT APPLES
RED AND GREEN AND YELLOW TOO
YUM YUM, OH I LOVE TO EAT APPLES!!

Verse 1
Way up high in the apple tree
I saw two eyes lookin' at me
I reached for the apple, it started to squirm
Oops! I found Willy the worm!!
(Chorus)

Willy the worm is a friend of mine
We eat apples all of the time
I let him crawl back to that tree
Oops! I see Willy looking at me!
(Chorus)
