Fall is a great time to take a walk with your child and talk about all of the wonderful colors, sights, sounds, and smells of the season.  In addition to simply enjoying time spent together, these types of observation walks are also a good opportunity to engage your child’s senses, build vocabulary, and talk about everyday science, such as why do leaves change colors?  (For the answer, click here.)
Here are some fun fall fingerplays to share as you explore:
Autumn Leaves
(To the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”)
Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down, all over town.
The cold wind blows them all around…
They’re drifting gently to the ground…
Take a rake and rake them up…
Fall Leaves Whisper
All the leaves are falling down (Flutter fingers downward)
Orange, green, red, and brown. (Futter fingers)
If you listen, you'll hear them say, (Cup hands around ears)
"Wintertime is on its way." (Whispering)
I'm a Little Pumpkin
(To the Tune of “ I'm a Little Teapot”)
I'm a little pumpkin, fat and round.
Here is my face making a frown.
I'm a little pumpkin, tall and thin.
Here is my face, making a grin.
I'm a little pumpkin, I've got style.
Here is my face making a smile!
Two Little Apples
(To the tune of Barney’s “I Love You, You Love Me”)
Way up high, in a tree
Two little apples smiled at me.
So I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples, mm-mm good.
(Repeat with one apple)
