Here are some fun songs to use your leaf sticks with to bring in AUTUMN. . .

" Autumn Leaves" (London Bridge)

Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.( arms up high like a tree then lower as song goes on )
Autumn leaves are falling down, (lower your voice)
Down to the ground (squat down and continue with this finger play)

"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

Five Little Leaves
(Five Little Ducks)

Five little leaves so bright and gay.
Were dancing about on a tree one day.
The wind came blowing through the town,
And one little leave came tumbling down.

Four little leaves... Three little leaves... Two little leaves... One little leaf so bright and gay Was dancing about on a tree one day The wind came blowing through the town And one little leaf came tumbling down.
