5+1 Autumn poems for children.

 

Summer is slowly slipping away and gives way to autumn. As School and kindergarten starts new challenges come into our lives. The days of the sunshine, sun cream, and iced lemonade are over, and soon we will face the problem of entertaining our kids between 4 walls. Back in the old days without iPhones and the internet parents or grandparents were listening to radio, reading books or telling stories while the mini ones were absorbing the knowledge around them. I still remember those rainy days when as a little girl I was learning some simple poems and proudly entertained the adults around me after I memorized them. That small image inspired me to start a new series for the new season. First of all here is 5+1 kids poem about autumn for the rainy days when you don`t have a chance to go out. You can teach them while you were painting or while you were gluing the fallen leaves to a piece of paper. At the end instead of the gloomy mood, you will end up with new happier memories about Autumn.

autumn kid childFalling Leaves

Little leaves fall softly down
Red and yellow, orange and brown
Whirling, twirling round and round
Falling softly to the ground.

Little leaves fall softly down
To make a carpet on the ground.
Then, swish, the wind comes whistling by
And sends them dancing to the sky.

Summer’s Endbutterfly
By Judith Viorst

One by one the petals drop
There’s nothing that can make them stop.
You cannot beg a rose to stay.
Why does it have to be that way?

The butterflies I used to chase
Have gone off to some other place.
I don’t know where. I only know
I wish they didn’t have to go.

 

The Leaves of the Trees
Irmgard Guertges
(to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”)

autumn townThe leaves of the trees turn orange and red
orange and red, orange and red
The leaves of the trees turn orange and red
All through the town.

The leaves of the trees come tumbling down
tumbling down, tumbling down
The leaves of the trees come tumbling down
All through the town.

The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish
Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish,
The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish
All through the town.

Scarecrow, Scarecrow
(to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle)

Scarecrow, scarecrow turn around.
Scarecrow, scarecrow touch the ground.
Stand up tall and blink your eyes.Scarecrow
Raise your hands up to the sky.
Clap your hands, then tap your knees.
Turn around and tap your feet.

Scarecrow, scarecrow touch your toes.
Scarecrow, scarecrow tap your nose.
Swing your arms so very slow,
Now real fast to scare the crows!
Touch your head, jump up and down.
Now sit down without a sound.

 

The Frisky Little Squirrel
(tune of The Grand Old Duke of York)

autumn squirrelOh, the frisky little squirrel,
He gathers nuts and seeds,
He hides them for the winter months,
so he’ll have all he needs!
Oh, up, up, up he goes,
(raise hand with pointed finger up as if going up tree)
And down, down, down he comes,
(finger down and bring hand down)
He runs around, goes up and down,
(point finger down and make a circle, then up & down)
His work is never done!
Oh, up, up, up he goes,
(raise hand with pointed finger up as if going up tree)
And down, down, down he comes,
(finger down and bring hand down)
He runs around, goes up and down,
(point finger down and make a circle, then up & down)
His work is never done.

 

In Autumn
by Winifred C. Marshallautumn leaves

They’re coming down in showers,
The leaves all gold and red;
They’re covering the little flowers,
And tucking them in bed.
They’ve spread a fairy carpet
All up and down the street;
And when we skip along to school,
they rustle ‘neath our feet.
