Leaves are Falling Down and Fall Finger Plays

Additional Information:






Finger Plays and Songs

Fall

The leaves are green, and the nuts are brown,

They hang so high they will never fall down,

Leave them alone till the bright fall weather

And then they will all come down together

Leaves Are Floating Down

Leaves are floating softly down (Flutter fingers)

They make a carpet on the ground (Spread hands apart)

Then swish!  The wind comes whirling by (Bring hands around fast)

And sends them dancing in the sky (Flutter fingers upwards)
