                   The Leaves Are Falling Down

The leaves are falling down,         (Wiggle Fingers downward)              
The leaves are falling down,         (Wiggle Fingers downward)
Whirling, Twirling All Around,      (Wiggle Fingers Side to Side)
The leaves are falling down!         (Wiggle Fingers downward)

This can also be done while standing. When you sing "The leaves are falling down", Have the children wiggle fingers down to the ground in a squatting position. When you sing "Whirling Twirling All Around", have the children spin in place. 

This Circle Time song helps kids practice their colors:

                         If You're Wearing Blue today
If you're wearing blue today
If you're wearing blue today
Please stand up, 
Please stand up, 
If you're wearing blue, 
If you're wearing blue, 
Please Stand up!

     Keep changing the color until all the children in your circle has had a chance to stand up. 

Hello Song
Hel-lo, Hel-lo,                         (wave your hands)
Hello and How are you             (point to your students)
I'm fine, I'm fine                      (point to your self or put your hand on your chest)
and I hope that you are too!     (point back at them again)

The Fuzzy Little Caterpillar   
The fuzzy little caterpillar went up into a tree,
spun his cocoon and then he went to sleep.
While he was sleeping he dreamt that he could fly,
when he woke up (sigh) he was a butterfly.

A hunting we will go
A-hunting we will go, A-hunting we will go,
We'll catch a butterfly
And put it in a box,
Then we'll let it go!
