Description: This songbook includes a thematic apple-themed song sung to the tune of "Twinkle Twinkle." Two versions of the song are included: one with the song only and a second version with suggested movement actions, for students working on motor imitation. Included extension activities targets include: imitating actions, apple-themed vocabulary, color attributes, prepositions, pronouns, requesting, and core vocabulary. Examples of core vocabulary in this song or extension activities include need, eat, help, don’t/not, etc. This song is perfect for a circle time activity, whole-group activity, push-in language activity, small-group activity, or during one-on-one therapy sessions with early language users, preschoolers, and/or young AAC users. Simple songs sung to familiar tunes are an effective tool when targeting imitation actions and creating verbal routines with students. In my experience, singing early language songs can increase student engagement when targeting core vocabulary for AAC users and student developing their functional language skills.
