Autumn - I'm A Little Apple

Your student's will love making these WOODEN SPOOL Apples to go along with the little song attached.  Include this activity as part of your teaching of the letter "A" or with a lesson based on FALL. 

I’m a Little Apple

Sung to: I’m a “Little Teapot”

I’m a little apple,
Short and round.
I make a crunchy,
Munchy sound.
If you bite into me,
You will see
I’m delicious as can be!
