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, 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.
