Two Little Apples

Read this poem called Two Little Apples. Then read it again and do the hand motions.

Way up high in the apple tree,
(hold both arms up)
Two little apples smiled down at me.
(point to self)
So I shook that tree as hard as I could.
(shake hands back and forth)
Down came the apples!
(hands flutter down)
Ummmm, ummmm, they were good!
(rub tummy)
