What We Did in Storytime: Apples

Today we talked about all about apples.

BOOK: ONE RED APPLE

The illustrations in this book are so lovely and detailed! It works well for storytime but would be even better shared one on one so you could really take in the pictures.

FLANNEL BOARD: FIVE APPLES IN A BASKET
The first apple in the basket was bright and shiny red.
The second apple in the basket said, “My, what a cozy bed!”
The third apple in the basket said, “Make room for me you pair!”
The fourth apple in the basket said, “Please move over there!”
The fifth apple in the basket said, “Oh dear, oh me, oh my”!
This basket looks like a pastry, I think we are in a pie!”

The humor of the last 2 lines goes over the heads of the youngest kids, but the parents always get a laugh. Either way it’s a fun little counting rhyme. I got the original rhyme and the template for the pie (I used clip art to make the apples) here.

BOOK: APPLE FARMER ANNIE /APPLE PIE ABC

The first group today was sitting so nicely that I picked the longer Apple Farmer Annie for our second book. Apple Pie ABC is one of my favorite alphabet books because of the funny story that goes along with it of a puppy desperately trying to eat a fresh apple pie that a little girl has just made.

SONG: BE A SEED

I really like this fun little rhyme! Shaking our hands and stretching our arms out as we pretend to be trees got lots of smiles.

For our craft today we painted our own apple trees with pom-poms (either craft pom-poms for larger apples or cotton balls with clothes pins). Holding the clothes pin really works those fine motor skills! And that’s what we did in storytime today! If you’d like to see what we did in past weeks, click on the “What We Did in Storytime” tag. Be sure to check back next week to see what Miss Marta did!
