Fall Finger Play Songs
Five Little Leaves
Five little leaves so bright and gay (hold up 5 fingers)
Were dancing about on a tree one day (flutter fingers)
The wind came blowing through town (make a wind sound)
One little leaf came tumbling to the ground (remove one leaf)
Keep repeating until there are no leaves left.

Using finger play songs with young children help teachers to teach pre-reading skills in a fun playful way. Finger play songs will help children develop memory, hear syllables, gain phonological awareness, play with rhymes and understand sequencing. Using finger play songs with props will help support your English Language Learners by associating the object with the words in the song to build on their vocabulary. Props will all also help maintain children’s attention which will lend to a better learning environment.
Five Little Scarecrows
Five little scarecrows standing in a field
The first one said “Oh my it’s getting late.”
The second one said “There are black crows flying in the air.”
The third one said “But we don’t care!”
The forth one said “They are ready to land.”
The fifth one said “Boo! all the crows flew away.”
