Fruit Songs, Poems and Finger Plays

Fingerplay
Bananas are my favorite fruit (make fist as if holding banana)
I eat one every day (hold up one finger)
I always take one with me (act as if putting one in pocket)
When I go out to play (wave goodbye)
It gives me lots of energy (make muscle)
To jump around and run (move arms as if running)
Bananas are my favorite fruit (rub tummy)
To me they're so much fun! (point to self and smile)

Strawberry Patch
(Tune: Paw Paw Patch)
Where oh where are all the children?
Where oh where are all the children?
Where oh where are all the children?
Way down yonder in the strawberry patch.

Pickin' up strawberries, put 'em in the basket,
Pickin' up strawberries, put 'em in the basket,
Pickin' up strawberries, put 'em in the basket,
Way down yonder in the strawberry patch.

Take the berries home and wash em up
Take the berries home and wash em up
Take the berries home and wash em up
Way down yonder in the strawberry patch!

Slice the berries up and make a pie.
Slice the berries up and make a pie.
Slice the berries up and make a pie.
Way down yonder in the strawberry patch!

Picked A Strawberry
(tune: "Clementine")
Picked a strawberry,
Picked a strawberry
That was growing
In the sun.
Then I washed it,
And I ate it,
And I picked another one.

The Watermelon Patch Song
(tune:  Are you Sleeping?)
Watermelon, (Make a circle with your arms.)
Watermelon,
On the vine, (Curve hands and arms beside body.)
On the vine,
Sweet and red and juicy, (Rub your tummy.)
Sweet and red and juicy,
Please be mine! (Palms together as though pleading.)
Please be mine!

Watermelon, (Make a circle with your arms.)
Watermelon,
Thump, thump, thump, (Make a thumping movement with thumb and middle finger.)
Thump, thump, thump,
I think you are ready- (Point, resting finger on your temple.)
I think you are ready-
Big and plump! (Make a circle with your arms.)
Bug and plump!  

Sing a Song of Lemonade
Sing a song of lemonade.
We'll pour it in a cup.
We'll stir it with a straw
And then we'll sip it up.
It will be so refreshing
We'll have to have some more,
And we'll be drinking lemonade forever, ever more!

Have You Ever Had An Apple
Have you ever had an apple, an apple an apple?
Have you ever had an apple
And heard it go crunch?
Have you ever had an orange, an orange..Etc..
And heard it go slurp?
Banana...... go mush?
(think of other fruits and the noises that go along with them)

I Like Oranges
(Tune:'Three Blind Mice')
I like oranges. I like oranges.
Oranges are a fruit. Oranges are a fruit.
They are not animals, tools and such.
They are are good fruit that I like so much.
So, I eat oranges. I eat oranges.
An orange is orange. An orange is orange. It is not red.
It is not purple nor pink nor gray.
An orange is simply not colored that way.

What Is Orange?
(Can use any fruit)
(Tune: Frere Jacques)
What is orange?
What is long?
What is it?
Bunny loves to eat it!
Horses love to eat it!
So do I!
So do I!
