September 21st marks the Autumnal Equinox and the first day of Fall.I thought I’d share this unvetted list in case anyone else is also in the beginning stages of planning their Fall playlist. In addition to lots of leaf, apple, and pumpkin activities that I plan on doing throughout the season we’ll be singing lots of Fall songs. I just began my search for songs and videos.

A selection of the songs I think we’ll try first
The Leaves are falling  “Farmer in the Dell”

The leaves are falling down
The leaves are falling down
Red, yellow, green, and brown
The leaves are falling down

A Squirrel Song
Sung to: “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain”

I’ll be gathering all the acorns till they’re gone.
I’ll be gathering all the acorns till they’re gone.
I’ll be gathering all the acorns, gathering all the acorns,
Gathering all the acorns till they’re gone.
(Children make collecting motion with their hands)

And I’ll put them all inside my little home.
I will put them all inside my little home.
I will put them all inside, put them all inside,
Put them all inside my little home.
(children pretend to place nuts in tree house)

And I’ll eat the nuts until the winter’s gone.
I will eat the nuts until the winter’s gone.
I will eat the nuts until, eat the nuts until,
Eat the nuts until the winter’s gone.
(children pretend to eat acorns)

Then I’ll do it all again come next fall.
I will do it all again come next fall.
I will do it all again, do it all again,
Do it all again come next fall.
(children make gathering motion with hands and arms again

Frisky Squirrel
Sung to: “The Grand Old Duke of York”

Oh, the frisky little squirrel
He gathers nuts and seeds.
He hides them for the winter months
So he’ll have all he needs.

Refrain:
Oh, up-up-up he goes
And down-down-down he comes.
He runs around – goes up and down.
His work is never done. (repeat refrain)
