Songs and Fingerplays


___________

The leaves are falling from the tree (flutter fingers)
Yellow brown and red (flutter fingers)
They patter softly like the rain (tap fingers softly on the floor)
One landed on my head. (tap head)


Pretty Autumn Leaves (sung to "London Bridge")
Pretty leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.
Pretty leaves are falling down,
Pretty autumn leaves.


Now we'll rake them in a pile, in a pile, in a pile.
Now we'll rake them in a pile,
Pretty autumn leaves.


In the Tree (sung to "Farmer in the Dell")
The squirrel up in the tree,
The squirrel up in the tree.
He cracks a nut and winks at me,
The squirrel up in the tree.


See the Squirrels (sung to "Frere Jacques")
See the squirrels, see the squirrels,
In the tree, in the tree.
Hiding nuts for winter, Hiding nuts for winter
In the tree, In the tree.


The Leaves On the Trees (sung to "The Wheels on the Bus")
The leaves on the trees turn orange and brown,
Orange and brown, Orange and brown.
The leaves on the tree turn orange and brown
All around the town.


The leaves on the tree come tumbling down,
Tumbling down, Tumbling down.
The leaves on the tree come 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 around the town.


Leaves Are Falling Down (sung to "Twinkle Twinkle")
Leaves are falling 'round the town
Watch them fall right on the ground
Autumn's coming it is true
Them comes winter just for you
Leaves are falling 'round the town
Falling, falling all around.


Leaves, Leaves Falling Down (sung to "Row Your Boat")
Leaves, leaves falling down
Falling on the ground
Red, yellow, orange and brown
Triangle oval and round.


Harvest Time (sung to "Twinkle Twinkle")
Harvest time is here again
In the garden we must dig
Carrots, radishes, onions too
All so fresh and yummy too
Harvest time is here again
Won't be long til Fall is here.


"Come Autumn leaves" said the wind one day (motion to come)
"Fly into the sky with me and play. (lift hand upward)
We can dance and twirl (twirl)
Until the days grow cold; (shiver)
Then into a corner you will curl" (curl into a ball)
