SING THIS FREE FALL SONG
“It’s Fall” is a song on the Sing Play Create YouTube Channel and a Free Resource in our library.
The falling leaves,
are blowin’ off the trees. They’re piling high,
right up to my knees. I’d rake them up,
But they make me sneeze!
C G7 C
So now there’s leaves all over me!
“It’s FALL! “It’s FALL!
The time when everyone throws a football!
“It’s FALL! “It’s FALL!
Aren’t you glad it’s fall!
You can get all the details on how to use this song and other FALL FREEBIES in this blog post.
Rhythm activities can be the basis of all music lessons. If the children “get” rhythm-then they’ll be able to sing, move and play the music too!
