Apple Rhyme


Five Little Apples

Five little apples lying on the floor. (show five fingers)
One rolls away, and then that leaves four. (make rolling motion with hands)

Four little apples hanging on the tree. (show four fingers)
I’ll pick one, and that leaves three. (raise arm for picking motion)

Three little apples, I know what to do! (show three fingers)
I’ll put one in my pocket, and that leaves two. (point to pocket)

Two little apples sitting in the sun. (show two fingers)
I’ll pick one up, and that leaves one. (bend down and pretend to pick up apple)

One little apple waiting in my lunch. (show one finger)
I’ll eat it up with a crunch, crunch, crunch! (pretend to eat)
