Ten Little Apples Song

apples

Here’s a quick and easy little ditty about apples.  It goes to the tune of Ten Little Indians.

One little, two little, three little apples,

Four little, five little, six little apples,  (You know where I’m going with this don’t you?)

Seven little, eight little, nine little apples,

Ten apples all together!

This is obviously a great counting song and you could reinforce the one to one counting principle (one object-one numeral) by using some type of apple visual (actual apples, flannel apples, pictures, etc.) and pointing as you sing.  Have the children count along by holding up their fingers as well.  With more advanced children you can even count backwards from ten to one.  You can also stretch their language skills  by helping them to brainstorm words to describe apples and then inserting them as in this example:

One little, two little, three little crunchy ones,

Four little, five little, six little sweet ones,

Seven little, eight little, nine little yellow ones,

Ten apples all together!

This song is perfect for singing in the car, at snack time, as a large group, or after a great story!
