Apple Poem

Apples big,
Apples small.
Guess what?
I like them all.


Five Red Apples 

Original Author: Unknown

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 (One finger falls)
Four red apples, hanging in a tree, etc.


Five Little Apples 

Original Author: Unknown

Five little apples hung on a tree
The farmer didn’t care
So guess who came to eat?
A CATERPILLAR…….MUNCH, MUNCH

Four little apples hung on a tree
The farmer didn’t care
So guess who came to eat?
A BIRD………MUNCH, MUNCH

Three little apples hung on a tree
The farmer didn’t care
So guess who came to eat?
A PIG……….MUNCH,MUNCH

Two little apples hung on a tree
The farmer didn’t care
So guess who came to eat?
A HORSE…….MUNCH,MUNCH

One little apple hung on a tree
The farmer didn’t care
So guess who came to eat?
A SCARECROW……MUNCH,MUNCH

Now the tree is bare
There are no more apples there
But when next fall comes around
Guess who’ll be there?

THE CATERPILLAR
THE BIRD
THE PIG
THE HORSE
and the SCARECROW

YUM!YUM

When you hold a rosy apple, just pretend that you can see
Through its walls so round and shiny, to a sleeping family.
Mother dear and her brown babies cuddled up so cosily
Each one dreaming that some day, they would be an apple tree.
