Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: If I Were a Leaf
If I were a leaf . . .
I’d jump down from my tree,
I’d dance in the wind,
I’d fly in the breeze.
[pretend to fly]
I’d change bright colors,
I’d spin in the air,
Then I’d land on the ground . . .
[sit down]
I just don’t know where!
[shrug shoulders]

Movement Rhyme: Apple Tree
Way up high in the apple tree
Two little apples did I see
So I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples
Mmm, they’re good!

Flannelboard Rhyme: Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate (Five fingers up)
The first one said “Oh my it’s getting Late” (Hands on cheeks)
The second one said “There’s a chill in the air” (arms around self)
The third one said “But we don’t care” (swing pointer finger up and down)
The fourth one said “We’re ready for some fun!” (hand in air)
The fifth one said “Let’s run, run, run!” (running motion)
So woooo went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Puppet Rhyme: Five Little Apples
Five little apples fallen from a tree
No one was looking
So who came to eat?
A rabbit! Munch, munch, munch!
(Mouse, bird, horse, bat)
Now the tree is bare
There are no more apples there
But when next fall comes around
Guess who’ll be there!
The rabbit, the mouse, the bird, the horse, and the bat!

Scarf Song: The Leaves on the Trees
Tune: The Wheels on the Bus
The leaves of the trees turn orange and red
orange and red, orange and red
The leaves of the trees turn orange and red
All through the town.

The leaves of the trees come tumbling down
tumbling down, tumbling down
The leaves of the trees 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 through the town.
