Action Rhyme:

Five Little Leaves

Five little leaves so bright and gay (hold up five fingers)

Were dancing about on a tree one day (wiggle fingers)

The wind came blowing through the town

Ooooooo……. Ooooooooo… wave arms around

One little leaf came tumbling down (bend down one finger)

Four little leaves…..

Three little leaves….

Two little leaves…

One little leaf….

Parachute Activity

The Leaves on the Trees (to the tune of the Wheels on the Bus)

The leaves on the trees are red and brown

Red and brown, red and brown.

The leaves on the trees are red and brown,

All through the town.

The leaves on the trees are falling down,

Falling down, falling down.

The leaves on the trees are falling down,

All through the town.

The leaves on the trees make a crunching sound,

Crunching sound, crunching sound.

The leaves on the trees make a crunching sound,

All through the town.

Let’s rake the leaves into a mound,

Into a mound, into a mound.

Let’s rake the leaves into a mound

All through the town.

The children in town jump up and down,

Up and down, up and down.

The children in the town jump up and down

On the leaves on the ground.

I pulled out the orange red and yellow scarves and put them in the middle of the parachute, and we pretended they were leaves. In retrospect, I should have added them later and had done a little something more with them at the end in the children jump up and down verse. Next time….
