Apple Poems and Songs


APPLES
Apples. apples, what a treat,
Sweet and tart and good to eat.
Apples green and apples red,
Hang from branches overhead,
And when they ripen,
Down they drop,
So we can taste our apple crop.
-Helen Moore


AN APPLE CHANT
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!


FIVE RED APPLES
Five red apples in a grocery store,
(Student's names) bought one and then there was four.
Four red apples on an apple tree,
___________ ate one and then there was three.
Three red apples. What did _________ do?
Why, she ate one and then there was two.
Two red apples ripening in the sun,
____________ ate one and then there was one.
One red apple and now we're done,
I ate the last one and now there are none!


"Ten Rosy Apples"

Ten rosy apples high in a tree
Safely hiding where no one can see.
When the wind comes rocking to and fro,
Then rosy apples to the ground must go.

"The Apple"

Up in the apple tree,
High off the ground,
I see an apple
So big and round.
I climb up the tree,
And hold on tight.
I pick that apple
And take a bite!

 


"Ten Red Apples"

Ten red apples grow on a tree
Five for you and five for me.
Let us shake the tree just so
And ten red apples will fall below.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

 


Our Tree

When spring comes round, our apple tree
 is very full of flowers,
And when a bird sits on a branch the 
petals fall in showers.
When summer comes round, our 
apple tree is very full of green,
And everywhere you look in it there 
is a leafy screen.
When autumn comes round, our 
apple tree is full of things to eat
And apples hang from every branch to tumble at our feet.
When winter comes round, our apple tree is full of snow and ice,
And rabbits come to visit it...
We think our tree is nice.

Shake, shake the apple tree
Apples red and rosy
Shake, shake the apple tree
Apples red and rosy.
One for you
One for me
Shake shake the apple tree!














Apple Songs


APPLE SEED
Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
I'm a little apple seed,
Peeking through,
Please help me,
I'll help you.
Dig me a hole,
And hide me away,
And I'll be an apple tree,
Some fine day.

APPLES, APPLES

Apples juicy, apples round,
On the tree or on the ground.

Apples are so good to eat!
