Music: “Little Red Apple” (CDC page 311)
A little red apple grew high in a tree. (Point up.)
I looked up at it. (Shade eyes and look up.)
It looked down at me. (Shade eyes and look down.)
“Come down, please,” I called. (Use hand to motion downward.)
And that little red apple fell right on my head. (Tap the top of your head.)
