The Leaves Are Falling Down

We are having a blast learning about Autumn or "Fall" as we call it here in Tennessee. Our favorite activity has been the song "The Leaves Are Falling Down." It is sung to the tune of the Farmer in the Dell and goes like this:
 The leaves are falling down.
 The leaves are falling down.
All over  (a child's name)
and all over town.
We use index cards with the children's name written on them to keep up with whose turn it is. At the line all over ____ we drop silk leaves on the child's head. The children love it. The activity keeps a long waiting list.
