Fall Songs


 Five Little Leaves

Five little leaves so bright and gay (choose five children to be leaves) Were dancing about on a tree one day (children twirl and dance) The wind came blowing through the town (teacher pretends to be wind and blows very hard) And one little leave came tumbling down (teacher touches one child on the head and as she/he does the child twirls to the ground) Four little leaves… Three little leaves… Two little leaves… One little leaf so bright and gay Was dancing about on a tree one day The wind came blowing through the town And one little leaf came tumbling down. (all children are on the floor)

And then I came and raked them all up in a pile. (Teacher pretends to rake the leaves into a big pile. The children love to scatter at this point so you can’t rake them up.


Here’s a simple fall song that the children love.

Scarecrow, Scarecrow

Scarecrow, Scarecrow, turn around Scarecrow, Scarecrow, touch the ground Scarecrow, Scarecrow, reach up high Scarecrow, Scarecrow touch the sky Scarecrow, Scarecrow bend down low scarecrow, Scarecrow touch your toe.

I like to let the children pretend to be scarecrows standing in a corn field.


 I have A song my two and three year olds love- I’m a little acorn round lying on the cold cold ground everybody steps on me that is why I’m cracked you see I’m a nut( click tongue twice) I’m a nut (click click) I’m a nut I’m a nut I’m a nut (click click)

 This is a Fall song the children in my class have always loved: The leaves turn red and yellow in the Fall…in the Fall Oh the leaves turn red and yellow in the Fall Oh the leaves turn red and yellow and the apples taste so mellow, oh the leaves turn red and yellow in the Fall!

 I learned this song from a fellow teacher… Autumn leaves now are falling See them tumbling down Autumn leaves now are falling falling down to the ground La, la, la, la, la, la la, la, la, la, la, la la, la, la, la, la, la la, la, la, la, la,
