Rhymes & Fingerplays: Autumn Leaves

Falling Leaves

All the leaves are falling down (Flutter fingers downward.)
Orange, green, red, and brown. (Flutter fingers.)
If you listen, you’ll hear them say, (Cup hands around ears.)
“Wintertime is on it’s way.” (Whispering.)

Autumn Leaves
Leaves are falling from the trees (flutter fingers down)
Yellow, brown and red
Falling, falling from above
One landed on my head! (hand on head)

Fall
Autumn winds begin to blow (blow)
Colored leaves fall fast and slow (wave hands)
Twirling, whirling, all around (turn body around)
Until at last they touch the ground (touch the ground)

Autumn Leaves are Falling Down
(sung to “London Bridge is Falling Down”)
Autumn leaves are falling down, (flutter fingers down)
Falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down.
We love autumn!
Take and rake and pile them up, (pretend to rake)
Pile them up, pile them up.
Take and rake and pile them up,
We love autumn!
Jump in them and toss ‘em around, (pretend to jump and toss leaves)
Toss ‘em around, toss ‘em around.
Jump in them and toss ‘em around. (sway hands side to side)
We love autumn!
