5 little leaves
5 little leaves so bright and gay
Were dancing about a tree one day
The wind came blowing through the town
1 little leaf came blowing down.
4 little leaves, etc...
Taking a Walk
(by Mary Jackson Elllis)
Taking a walk is so much fun!
We don´t hurry,
We don´t run.
We watch for birds,
We watch for bees,
We watch for all the falling leaves.
Yellow and brown.
Fall the leaves
All over the ground.
Rake them up
In a pile so high,
They almost reach
Up to the sky.
Autum leaves are floating down,
(float arms and hads up and down)
They make a carpet on the ground.
Then swish, the wind comes whistling by,
(move arms to the side quickly)
And sends them dancing to the sky.
Five Red Leaves
Five red leaves, five and no more (hold up 5 fingers)
The caterpillar ate one, now there are four. (thumb down)
Four red leaves, that´s easy to see.
Along came a rainstorm, now there are three. (index down)
Three red leaves, nothing much to do.
A big wind blew, now two! (middle down)
Two read leaves, that´s not much fun,
I glued one on my paper, now there is one.
Hang on, pretty read leaf! Your branches won´t break,
You´re one less leaf for me to rake.
I Love Fall
I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It´s apples and cider.
It´s an airborne spider.
It´s pumpkins in bins.
It´s burrs on dog´s chins.
It´s wind blowing leaves.
It´s chilly red kness.
It´s nuts on the ground.
It´s a crisp dry sound.
It´s green leaves turning
And the smell of the burning.
It´s clouds in the sky.
It´s fall. That´s why...
I love fall.
