Apple Tree (Black and White Rhythm Chart)

  • This visually appealing rhythm chart for "Apple Tree" is great to use to get students to keep the rhythm. All they have to do is point to each apple as they sing the song. I give each student their own copy to colour in.
  • I have a laminated colour copy that I use out the front of the classroom choosing students to come out and show me "how they keep time with the words of the song".
