What do you make with apples game

This was a cute game leftover from the previous story time leader when I took my job. She cut out pictures of different things we eat that are made from apples and turned them into feltboard pieces. I ask the kids to list as many things as they can think of and I put the pieces on the feltboard as they mention them.

Here is the list of apple items I use:
  • Candied apples
  • Apple pie
  • Apple sauce
  • Apple jelly
  • Apple cider
  • Apple crisp
  • Apple juice
  • Apple turnover

5 Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first one said "Oh My! it's getting late."
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third one said, "But we don't care."
The forth one said, "Let's run and run and run."
The fifth one said, "I'm ready for some fun."
Whoooo went the wind,
Out went the lights,
And those five little pumpkins went rolling out of sight.

Mr. Groundhog....

To the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Mr. Groundhog in the ground,
Pop your head up, look around,
Do you see your shadow?
Look up high and look down low.
Mr. groundhog in the ground,
Pop your head up, look around

I'm a Little Groundhog

To the tune of I'm a Little Teapot

I'm a little groundhog (place hands on hips)
Short and brown
All Winter long, (rest head on hands and pretend to sleep)
I sleep underground.

On February 2nd (peek through cupped hands)
I peek out and then,
If I see my shadow (put hands over head as if hiding in a hole)
I go in my hole again!
