Fall is Here!

Happy Fall!
Sunny days with cool breezes are definitely something to get excited about!
Things have definitely been busy in my neck of the woods!  This school year has gotten off to a great start and I've enjoyed seeing all of my little and not so little friends again.  :)

Today I have a song about apples to share.  I recommend using this song with younger groups (I work in special education classrooms and use this song with students who are PreK-5), and it focuses on color identification (red, yellow & green), and following directions.

I had so much fun recording this one!  I added a violin part to give it something a little special.  I think it really made the song sound good!   I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I have already implemented this song in a couple of classrooms and the students are digging it.  For visual aides, I've used printed apple clip pictures art that have been laminated and then students put them in a basket.  I've also used a large picture of a basket with velcro dots on the front of it and the students place their laminated apple picture on the basket.  Both ways have worked well!
How could you incorporate this song in your sessions?

As always, thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more posts!
