Poem added 9-9-98 Original Author Unknown

Leaves are dropping from the trees
Yellow, brown, and red.
They patter softly like the rain-
One landed on my head.

Come out! Come out! The weather is clear.
Come out! Come out! October is here.
I'll show you some presents from Jolly Jack Frost.
They are hidden in the leaves that the wind has tossed.

The brown nuts are falling and squirrels are at play.
They are finding all the good ones to hide them away.

Crimson leave and yellow.
Apple red and mellow.
Golden pumpkins on the ground.
Sights of autumn all around.

Falling, falling autumn leaves are falling.
Falling, falling, falling to the ground.
Whirling, whirling autumn leaves are whirling.
Whirling, whirling, whirling to the ground.

Down down yellow and brown
the leaves are falling all over the town.


The Leaves added 9-9-98 Original Author Unknown

Sung to: "The Wheels on the Bus"

BEFORE singing the song I give each child 1 laminated Red leaf and 1 laminated Orange leaf. They both have long yarn stems As we sing the first verse each child holds one leaf in each hand. As we sing the first verse they raise the leaf who's color we are singing.

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.

We stand up for the next verse - still holding our leaves. We make our leaves tumble to the floor without letting go of the stem.

The leaves of the tree come tumbling down,
tumbling down, tumbling down,
The leaves of the tree come tumbling down,
All Around the town.

For this verse we "swish" our leaves across the floor.

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.

For this verse we "gently" drop our leaves into the middle of the circle and jump in place.

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.


Raking Leaves added 9-9-98 Original Author Unknown

My poor back will surely break,
If one more leaf I have to rake!

To Pumpkins at Pumpkin Time added 9-13-99 by Grace Cornell Tall

Back into your garden-beds!
Here come the holidays!
And woe to the golden pumpkin-heads
Attracting too much praise.

Hide behind the hoe, the plow,
Cling fast to the vine!
Those who come to praise you now
Will soon sit down to dine.

Keep your lovely heads, my dears,
If you know what I mean.
Unless you want to be in pie,
Stay hidden or stay green!!


Pumpkin poem added 9-13-99 Original Author Unknown

One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.
A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
(I really am quite proud of that.)
But there is something I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.
I ate the other seed, you see.
Now will it grow inside of me?

(I'm so relieved since I have found
That pumpkins only grow in the ground!)
