How to Stream Music in the Classroom or at Home
If you want to get songs without the ads from YouTube, there are a couple of simple solutions. You can click the songs directly from this post, and it should take away most of the ads. Screen it first to make sure it works for your needs.
If you are using just audio, I have Amazon Music Unlimited. It isn’t free, but well worth it for me because we use it each day between the classroom and home. If you would want to download more than 10 songs a month, it’s worth its weight in gold!
It’s compatible with your phone, electronic devices, Alexa, and computer. What’s great is that I can download the songs while I’m home on my phone using wifi with the Amazon Music app. Then the songs are always there on my phone, and I can play them in the classroom, the car, or anywhere else.

Apple Songs for Preschool
Way Up High in an Apple Tree – The Learning Station
You can always trust The Learning Station to provide quality songs, and their apple songs for preschool are no exception! I love their take on one of the most classic preschool apple songs. Counting backward from 5 makes this a great learning song! Also, they use the familiar tune of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” so everyone can sing along instantly.
Way Up High in an Apple Tree – Jbrary
You can sing this popular song to the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle,” as The Learning Station does, and also to the tune of “This Old Man.” Or, as Jbrary shows us, it can be used as a chant! Chanting and singing are actually two separate skills. The vocal cords are used differently and you breathe differently in each. They’re both amazing learning tools!
Farmer Brown Had Five Green Apples – Miss Nina
This fun preschool apple song provides lots of learning options. It counts backward from 5, providing early math skills reinforcement. You can also use it during a farm theme, or sing it in the fall and talk about harvest! Plus, kids will love pretending to eat their apples greedily. The author of this song gets major bonus points for rhyming the words “tree” and “greedily!” We love rhyming songs!
Apple Tree – Music With Nancy
Nancy is one of our favorite children’s music artists. She presents early learning concepts in a fun and approachable way through music! You can see more of her great songs in our list of circle time songs that teach. This sweet song has two versions, one with animations and one with actions. It covers a lot of great preschool science in a short amount of time: seeds, life cycles, pollination, birds, butterflies, and more!
Apple Tree Song – Alina Celeste
This song is great to learn from Alina and then sing during your own circle time! The tune is simple and easy to learn, so the kids will be singing along in no time. Kids will love getting to be your special helper and telling you how many apples to buy. It’s a wonderful counting song!
Apple Songs for Kids
Although apple songs are a natural tie-in to fall, you certainly don’t have to stop there. These fun songs can be used year-round! There are lots of apple songs for kids, like these next ones, that are a little more general and can be sung anytime. They are great for teaching different skills, including phonics, the days of the week, counting, the names of common fruits, and science! They’d also be a perfect addition to a fruit and vegetable theme.
Apples and Bananas – Raffi
You can’t have a list of apple songs for kids without including this classic! Join our beloved Raffi as he sings through everyone’s favorite phonics song. What happens to the words “apples” and “bananas” if you change the vowels? Plus, Raffi includes a key change, which is one of my favorite musical tactics to draw everyone’s attention back to the song!
Fruit Song – The Kiboomers
A different take on an apple song that’s all about fruit! The Kiboomers introduce you to lots of different yummy fruits, including apples, bananas, blueberries, and grapes. This one is perfect for ESL students who are learning the names of the fruits in English, and toddlers love it too! “Yay fruit!”
Fruit Song for Kids – The Singing Walrus
Another song to introduce some of the most common fruits we eat. This one also includes the days of the week! I love how they keep the chorus easy to sing, using just the words “naa naa naa.” That helps everyone to be able to sing along and stay engaged with the song, even if they are hearing it for the first time. Plus it’s a great chance for a dance break or some air guitar!
I Love Apples – Harry Kindergarten
The subtitle reads “a content-rich song for kids about apples” and they’re exactly right! There’s an easy chorus combined with some fun hip-hop-style verses that teach more information about apples. Learn how to grow the seeds, some common food items that contain apples, and the parts of an apple.
10 Apples On My Head – Super Simple Songs
Here’s a simple, and silly, apple song for preschool! It helps practice the names of fruits and counting to ten. There is no specific mention of fall, so it’s perfect to use anytime. It would also be perfect to pair with the classic book Ten Apples Up on Top.
We hope you’ve loved these apple songs! For other amazing songs for the fall, check out our list of fall songs for preschool. We’ve also got some fun additional apple activities, like this apple tree color sorting activity.
