Songs
Five Little Apples
Five red apples hanging in a tree (Hold up five fingers)
The juiciest apples you ever did see.
The wind came by and gave an angry frown (Fingers flutter downward)
And one little apple came tumbling down (lower one finger)
Four red apples, hanging in a tree, (Hold up four fingers)
The juiciest apples you ever did see.
The wind came by and gave an angry frown (Fingers flutter downward)
And one little apple came tumbling down (lower one finger)
Three red apples, hanging in a tree, (Hold up three fingers)
The juiciest apples you ever did see.
The wind came by and gave an angry frown (Fingers flutter downward)
And one little apple came tumbling down (lower one finger)
Two red apples, hanging in a tree, (Hold up two fingers)
The juiciest apples you ever did see.
The wind came by and gave an angry frown (Fingers flutter downward)
And one little apple came tumbling down (lower one finger)
One red apples, hanging in a tree, (Hold up two fingers)
The juiciest apples you ever did see.
The wind came by and gave an angry frown (Fingers flutter downward)
And one little apple came tumbling down (lower one finger)
No red apples, hanging in a tree, (Hold up hand with all fingers down)
Craft
Apple prints. Cut apples in half, apply paint, and press on paper.
Other
The fingerplay works well as a flannelboard with 5 large apples, a tree, and a wind graphic (I just copied clipart and glued them to sandpaper or felt).
