Fall Poems and Songs to Celebrate the Season

The days are growing shorter and chillier!  Here are some poems to help you celebrate this fall season with your class.  Poems and songs are wonderful ways to work on phonemic awareness, excellent opportunities to incorporate ELD into your day and a great way to have fun in Kindergarten!  Happy singing!

 

The Leaves are Falling Down

(tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
The leaves are falling down
The leaves are falling down
Red, yellow, green and brown
The leaves are falling down

Fingerplay:


Way up high in the apple tree
Two little apples smiled at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could.
Down came the apples, mmmmm they were good!

 

 

 

The Leaves on the Tree 

Tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

You might want to provide each child with an orange and a red leaf to act out this song.  Or, just act it out using hands for leaves.

The leaves on the trees turn orange and red

Orange and red, orange and red,

The leaves on the trees turn orange and red

All around the town.

The leaves of the tree come tumbling down,

Tumbling down, tumbling down,

The leaves of the tree come tumbling down,

All around the town.
The leaves of the trees go “swish, swish, swish,”

“Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish,”

The leaves of the trees go “swish, swish, swish”

All around the town.

We’ll rake them in a pile and jump right in!

Jump right in, Jump right in!

We’ll rake them in a pile and jump right in!

All around the town.
