Here We Go Round the Apple Tree 

(To the tune of "Here  We Go Round the Mulberry Bush." Start by joining hands and dancing in a circle.)

Here we go round the apple tree,
the apple tree, the apple tree 

Here we go round the apple tree,
 on a cool and sunny morning. 

(Pretend to climb the tree together.) 

This is the way we climb the tree,
climb the tree, climb the tree, 

This is the way we climb the tree,
on a cool and sunny morning. 

(Pretend to pick the apples.) 

This is the way we pick the apples,
pick the apples, pick the apples, 

This is the way we pick the apples,
on a cool and sunny morning. 

(Pretend to eat the apples.) 

This is the way we eat the apples,
eat the apples, eat the apples. 

This is the way we eat the apples,
on a cool and sunny morning. 

YUM, Yumm!  (Rub your belly.)

4. Early Literacy Tip - 

Mathematical and Scientific Thinking (Time and Sequence)

Helping children to see the order in which things take place, whether in a book like Orange Pear Apple Bear, in a recipe for applesauce, in the sequence of a day, helps them to develop the mathematical concept of sequencing.
