Hello everyone! This week we will talk about fall activities about falling leaves, apples and pumpkins.
Song – So Happy You’re Here Today by Hap Palmer
Book – I Know It’s Autumn by Eileen Spinelli- A rhyming celebration of the sights, smells, and sounds of autumn, such as pumpkin muffins, turkey stickers on spelling papers, and piles of raked leaves.
Rhyme- Way Up High In the Apple Tree
Say as rhyme, or sing to ‘This Old Man‘
Way up high, in a tree (point up)
Two little apples looking down at me (two fists up in the air)
So I shook that tree as hard as I could (two fists shake ‘trunk’)
Down fell the apples (fists fall to ground)
Mmmm! Were they good!(rub tummy)
Flannelboard – Five Little Squirrels
Tune: “London Bridges Falling Down”All the leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down (Imitate leaves falling down)
All the leaves are falling down, it is fall.Take the rake and rake them up, rake them up, rake them up (Imitate raking leaves)
Take the rake and rake them up, it is fall.
Make a pile and jump right in, jump right in, jump right in, (Children jump forward)
Make a pile and jump right in, it is fall.
Hanging on a tree five fingers held up
The juiciest apples you ever did see!
The wind came past
And gave an angry frown shake head and look angry
And one little apple came tumbling down.
Four red apples, etc.
