Sing a Song

Gently Falling Leaves

Make up your own hand motions to show the falling leaves.

Little leaves fall gently down
Yellow, black, orange and brown
Whirling, whirling round and round
Quietly without a sound.
Falling softly to the ground.
Down and down and down and down.

Try This

Today’s colors are orange and black. Can your child think of an animal that is orange and black? Give a name to the animal and then tell a story about the animal. Have your child draw a picture to go with the story.
