What does our Apple Jam Party consist of?

— What are we going to do & to have? Let’s see what our Apple-Jam Party consists

What are we going to have? Take a piece of paper from this apple and read a word.

(Children take out pieces of paper from a big artificial apple with the words: riddles,
plays, songs, rhymes, crossword, games, fun, stories and jokes).

Please, listen to the story “Appleseed John” told by the student’s of the 6
“B” form and look at the illustrations made by the students.

Appleseed John

John was a poor man who lived alone. “I want to do people some good,” he said to
himself; “But how can I? I am old and I have so little money!”

One day he said, “I know what I shall do”. But did not tell anyone about it. He
only worked harder to get some more money.

With the money he bought apples – rosy red apples, big yellow apples, and bright
green apples.

When he ate them he saved all the cores, and put them in a bag.

Early one morning he took the bag and a strong stick, and walked far into the country.
“Here is a good place,” he said. He made a little hole in the ground with his stick
and planted and apple core.

“Good-bye, little seeds!” he said. “Some day you will be fine apple-trees.”

He planted many apple cores that day, and the next day too. Then he went back to his
work. He worked hard and got some more money. He bought more apples, and when his bag was
again full of cores, he went to plant them.

People began to know him.

“You will not see the apples,” they said. “Trees grow slowly.”

Old John only laughed.

“Yes,” he said. “But someone must plant the seeds before others eat the fruit”.

He sometimes stayed at farms and told the children merry stories. Everybody loved him,
and when he went away they said, “Good-bye, come again, dear old Appleseed John!”

So the years went by, and the old man died.

“I have done a little good, I think,” he said as he closed his eyes.

In that country today you will see many, many apple-trees. If you ask why there are so
many trees there, people will say, “Oh! Old Appleseed John planted them long, long
ago”. And then they will tell you the story.

— Look at the crossword. To find the answers to questions №5, №6, №3, №7 we
must listen to my rhyme and finish it with the last word.

№ 5. It’s red and sweat and it’s good to eat.

№ 6. 6 little apples are on a tree. Andy goes up the tree, down come three.

№ 3. This is the season when days are cool when we eat apples and go to school.

№ 7. Yellow apples, brown and red are good for my teeth. Says little Ted.

— These students are holding letters, which form the name of a city in the world. The
city’s nickname is Big Apple. Name the letters and guess the city. (New York)

Look at Ann. She is very little. She likes apples very much. Her mother buys apples
every day, but today she hasn’t bought any. But little Ann wants apples. Listen to what
she says.

Anny: Mum, I want an apple. Give me an apple please.

Mummy: Oh, dear. It’s evening now. Your toys are sleeping, your books are
sleeping and apples are sleeping too.

Anny: Oh, no Mummy. Only little apples are sleeping, big apples are not sleeping.
Give me a big apple, please.

— Little Ann is a serious girl. But these boys are fond of jokes. Let’s look at them
and listen to their jokes.

— Hey, N. I want to tell you something about worms!

— Why? Don’t you see that I am eating!

— As you like.

— Now. What did you want to tell me?

— It’s late. I wanted to tell you that there was a worm in your apple.

— Oh, no!

— Sir, I’ve made an apple pie. Shall I say, “The pie is ready” or “The pie is

— If it is as it was yesterday, say, “The pie is burnt”

— N, can you solve a problem? If mother has 5 children and only 4 apples, how can she
share the apples, so that each child has an equal part?

— Let her make a compote or jam of these apples.

— See, N. If your brother has 5 apples and you take 2 from him. What will be the

— He will beat me.

— Appleseed John planted many apple cones. The children of this group know a song and
some rhymes about how to plant and grow plants.

(The children are holding a branch in blossom and a branch with apples in their hands)

Take my little hoe; dig a hole in the ground.
Take my little seed, and I plant it down.
Tooky, tooky, tooky, tooky, tidal.
Oh, we’ll all dance around and see my little seed grow,


Tooky, tooky, tooky, tooky, tidal, oh,
Tooky, tooky, tooky, tooky, tidal, oh,
Let’s all dance around and see my little seed grow.

The rain it came and it washed my ground.
I thought my little seed was going to drown.
I waded and I splashed and I carried my seed;
A planted it again on some higher ground.


The sun got hot and my ground got dry.
I thought my little seed would burn and die.
I carried some water from a watering mill,
I said, “little seed, you can drink your fill”.


— Let’s guess the word № 1 in our crossword. Have you read the book about Tom
Sawyer by Mark Twain? Then, what is Tom Sawyer’s aunt’s name? (Polly)

— Now, who can find an English equivalent of the English proverb: Like mother, like
daughter”? (Яблоко от яблони недалеко падает).

Aunt Polly (AP) – Tom! Tom! Where is the boy? Tom!

Tom (T) – Here I am.

AP – The dog? Do dogs eat apple jam?

T – I don’t know, Aunt. Why not?

T – I don’t know, Aunt!

AP – It’s jam, that’s what it is. Hand me that switch and I’ll teach you a

T – Oh, look behind you, Aunt. Somebody’s coming to see you

Tom runs away.

AP turning round – Who’s there? Nobody. Tom! Tom! What a naughty boy!

— The proverb “Like mother, like daughter” doesn’t refer to these 2 daughters.
Look at them:

Mother and her daughters

Mother (Mo) – my dear daughters, I want to make apple jam today.

Polly (P) that’s good.

The clever boy

Shop Assistant (Sh) – Yes, what do you want?

Boy – I want a lot of apples for 25 rubles.

Sh – Ok. Here you are.

(gives the apples)

Boy – M-m-m. But my mother also bought apples in this shop last week. She had a lot
of apples for 25 rubles.

Sh – (angry) Don’t say stupid things, boy! I am a busy man and I have no
time to talk to you.

Boy – But you must give me more apples for 25 rubles.

Sh – Don’t you understand? The fewer apples you have the less you’ll have to
carry. Only 2 apples. It isn’t difficult to carry them.

Boy – All right. Here is the money.

(turns back)

Sh – But why? It isn’t enough. You must pay more.

Boy – Don’t you understand? The fewer coins you have, the less you’ll have to
count. Only 2 coins. It isn’t difficult to count them. Bye!

There is still one more boy in a shop. But he doesn’t want to buy anything. What does
he want?

No one let me speak

(Mr Smith is in his greengrocer’s shop. Three women are waiting in the shop.)

Mr Smith — Yes? Who’s next, please?

Miss White – I think you’re next, Mrs Ball. You were here before me, weren’t you?

Mrs Ball – Oh, was I?

Mr Smith – What can I do for you, madam? Do you need any fruit?

Mrs Ball – Let me see. Ah, yes! I want –

(A small boy runs into the shop. He pushes his way to the front.)

Johnny – Please, Mr Smith…

Mr Smith –One moment, young man! I’m serving this lady. And these two ladies are
waiting. (He turns to Mrs Ball again). Yes, madam. What were you saying?

Johnny – But, sir!

Mrs Ball – Be quiet! I want two kilos of potatoes, Mr Smith.

Mr Smith –Two kilos of potatoes. Certainly. I have some good ones here. (He points
to the potatoes near the counter).
Forty pence a kilo. Are these all right?

Mrs Ball – Yes, I’ll take those.

Miss White – They can’t wait! They want to be first!

Mrs Wood – How old are you?

Johnny –Nine, er…

Mrs Wood – Only nine! And you pushed in front of this lady.

Johnny –I had to. I wanted…

Miss Ball – (Not letting him finish) Young people must learn to wait. You
can’t push in front of people. You’re not the only customer in the shop, you know?

Mrs Wood – Did your mother send you?

Johnny – No, I wanted…

Mrs Wood – (Quickly) Ah, you wanted something for yourself! You couldn’t
wait, could you? What’s your name?

Johnny – Johnny Bell.

Miss White – You live in Church Street, don’t you? I’ve seen you there

Johnny – Yes, That’s right

Mr Smith – (shouting) They-re nit there! There was a box of apples in my car
and now it’s gone. The car’s empty.

Johnny – I saw two men near your car, Mr Smith. They opened the door and took out a
box of apples.

Mr Smith – My apples! I’ve lost a big box of apples (He turns to Johnny and
shouts in an angry voice.)
Why didn’t you tell me?

Johnny –I wanted to tell you, sir, but no one let me speak!

It’s time to play one of the favorite games of English children. It’s called
“Bobbing apples”. You see apples floating in a bowl. Catch it with your teeth, and the
