Song Title: Fruit Song
Video length: 3:22
The fruit song for kids is a fun way for children to learn some of the more common fruits we eat. The song uses an interactive call and response structure that makes it really easy to sing along. It also incorporates the days of the week, so that children can become more familiar with them.
In each verse, Little Chick talks about how she eats fruits every single day, describing which particular fruit she eats on which day. Every sentence is repeated by the Three Little Cows (and the audience).
We kept the chorus really easy, only using “Naa, naa, naa” as lyrics because we want the children to relax and enjoy the music in this part. You can do lots of fun things during the chorus: dance, jump, swing the arms, play the air guitar….
During the breakdown, Little Chick and the Cows say the names of each fruit one more type, in a rhythmical call-and-response-chant.
“Fruit” vs. “Fruits”
The noun “fruit” is both countable and uncountable. It is usually used in singular form (e.g. “You need to eat more fruit”), but when talking about different kinds, it is used in the plural form (e.g. “There are many kinds of tropical fruits.”).

Review the Days of the Week
This song not only introduces different kinds of fruits, but also reviews the days of the week. Please note that all the days of the week have an -s at the end (e.g. Mondays vs. Monday since Little Chick is talking about every Monday).
