It’s a free fall song to sing and play in the elementary music room. Just in time for Fall music lessons.
FREE FALL SONG
Catch the song lyrics, presentation and guitar lesson to “It’s Fall” when you SUBSCRIBE TO THE FREE RESOURCE LIBRARY.
I think the song will work well for any elementary classroom.
Although I didn’t put movement ideas in the resource, you will be able to ask your students to act out the song for you.
Be sure to watch this video with tips using props and manipulatives.
You can easily combine those ideas with a lesson using “It’s Fall”.
CREATIVE MOVEMENT IDEAS FOR THE FREE FALL SONG
Try having students walk around the room pretending to rake leaves into one large pile in the middle of the circle.
Next, have them jump on the leaves and spread them all around the room again, just as the song ends.
Finally, use some sand blocks, shakers and rhythm sticks to make the sound of leaves as the other students move around the room.
FREE FALL SONG MANIPULATIVES
And don’t forget that you can use the leaf rhythm cards to help students make rhythms to play during the song.
And check out these fun RHYTHM HANDS! Another Fall Freebie to help you have a great start to the school year!
If you don’t have time to print/cut/laminate, you could use colored construction paper and have students trace their hands.
Next, cut a square or circle around the hand.
Finally, use a sharpie to put rhythms on the hand.
Make a big “music rhythm tree” using the hands as leaves.

PLAY THE GUITAR
The resource includes the guitar chords and a strumming pattern to help students play along.
Use the YouTube video in your class or the presentation file.
Finally, print out the sheet music or the lyric/chord sheet for your students.
