Fall Songs


Red, yellow, orange & green, Can you guess what I’ve just seen? Autumn colors in the air, Autumn colors everywhere.

Have the children collect colorful leaves and place the poem with leaves on clear contact paper. Cover with a second sheet of clear contact paper and add a string using a hole punch. I put two copies of the poem back to back so that the poem can be read from either side if it is hung away from the wall.


 This little Fall song is sung to the easy tune of “Wheels on the Bus.” Give each child a paper leaf for the movement portion.

The leaves on the trees turn orange and brown, orange and brown, orange and brown. The leaves on the trees turn orange and brown, all through the town.

The leaves on the trees come tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down. The leaves on the trees coming tumbling down, all through the town.

The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish. Swish, swish, swish. Swish, swish, swish. The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish, all through the town.


 This is a cute song for Fall, sung to the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle”

Falling falling falling leaves, Mother Nature did you sneeze? (ACHOO!) Red ones, yellow ones, orange and brown. Big ones, little ones on the ground. Falling falling falling leaves, Mother Nature did you sneeze? (ACHOO!)

The children love this song, especially the ACHOO part. It’s spoken loudly and very animated!


Halloween Chant Start by holding up 5 fingers above opposite wrist wiggle hand-

“5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate.” (hold up 1 finger for 1st pumpkin then 2 etc.) The 1st one said “my it’s getting late”. The 2nd one said “there are witches in the air”. The 3rd one said “I don’t care”. The 4th one said let’s run let’s run”. The 5th one said “Isn’t Halloween fun?” (make swishing gesture) Then swish went the wind and out went the lights and the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight. (roll hand over hand)
