5 Little Apples (Teasing Mr. Slinky Worm)

5 Little Apples
(Tune: 5 Little Monkeys)

5 little apples hanging in a tree,
Teasing Mr. Slinky worm,
“You can’t eat me, no you can’t eat me!”
Along came Mr. Slinky worm,
As quiet as can be…
and SNAP! he bites that apple right out of the tree!
(Remove one of the apples from the felt board
Continue counting down until all the apples get eaten)

No little apples hanging in the tree,
Teasing Mr. Slinky Worm
“You can’t eat me, no you can’t eat me!”
Along comes Mr. Slinky Worm as full as can be
from eating all those apples right out of the tree!

Cut out 5 apples from felt, a tree, and a Mr. Slinky Worm. Have all the apples on the tree to start and slinky out Mr. Slinky when he comes looking for an apple. Have the children help you with the words, slowing down and giving them time to remember how the poem goes.
