Songs & Fingerplays

Little Miss Clover is nodding her head,
sleepy and tired ready for bed.
Kind Mrs. Oak Tree comes sending down
a blanket of leaves
red, yellow, orange and brown.
The rain tucks them in,
the autumn wind sings
and little miss clover will sleep until Spring.

Grey Squirrel

Grey squirrel, Grey squirrel swish your bushy tail.
Grey squirrel Grey squirrel swish your bushy tail.
Wrinkle up your funny nose, hold a nut between your toes.
Grey squirrel Grey squirrel swish your bushy tail.

Vegetable Stamping

Children can use various harvest vegetables to stamp with paint onto paper. Green peppers, carrots and potatoes make excellent stampers.

Theme Ideas

Fill a wading pool with fall leaves.(have parents bring in freshly raked leaves) Let children play in the wading pool filled with leaves. For saftey I only let no more than 3 children at a time in the wading pool. If leaves escape from the pool remember half the fun for the children is putting the leaves back in the pool.
