Songs, Rhythms, and Fingerplays:

A Little Apple Seed

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!

Way up High in the Apple Tree

Way up high in an apple tree, (Hold up both your hands and spread your fingers for pretend apple tree)
Five red apples smiled down at me. (Hold up 5 fingers)
I shook that tree as hard as I could, (Pretend to shake the tree)
Down came an apple! (catch apple and bite it)

Mmmmm it was good! (Rub your tummy in a circle motion)
Way up high in that apple tree, (Hold up both your hands and spread your fingers for pretend apple tree)
Four red apples smiled down at me. (Hold up 4 fingers)
(Repeat above verse with 4, 3, 2, 1, then continue with the ending below)
Way up high in that apple tree. (Hold up both your hands and spread your fingers for pretend apple tree)
No more apples smiling down at me. (Hide your hands behind your back.)
I shook that tree as hard as I could. (Pretend to shake the tree)
Down came no apples! They’re gone for good! (Hands out to sides with “what” hands, shoulders up and down on
“gone/good”)

Way up high in that apple tree. (Hold up both your hands and spread your fingers for pretend apple tree)
