A is for Apple Finger Play and Song:
A Little Red Apple:
Way up high in the apple tree (arms stretched up high)
Two little apples smiled at me (point to cheeks)
I shook that tree as hard as I could (pretend to shake tree)
Down came the apples (make downward motion with arms)
Mmm, they were good! (rub stomach)
Apples, apples, one, two, three,
Apples for you,
Apples for me.
Apple trees tiny,
Apple trees tall.
Apples, apples, are nice to eat.
