circle time songs

We're excited to introduce several new songs to our forest school families this fall. Here are the words to the finger plays and songs we'll sing this season. Enjoy!

Autumn has come

Autumn has come
Summer's away
Watch the leaves fall
And welcome the day


Johnny Appleseed Grace

Oh, the earth is good to me
And so I thank the earth
For giving me the things I need --
The sun, and the rain, and the appleseed.
The earth is good to me.


Blow, Wind, Blow

Blow wind blow
And go mill go
That the miller may grind his corn
That the baker may take it
And into bread bake it
And bring us a loaf in the morn'
Bring us a loaf in the morn'


Little Jenny Wren

As Little Jenny Wren
Was sitting by the shed
She fluttered with her wings
And nodded with her head
She fluttered with her wings
And nodded with her head
As Little Jenny Wren
Was sitting by the shed


Come, Follow Me

Come, follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow me
Wither shall I follow, follow, follow
Wither shall I follow, follow thee
To the greenwood, to the greenwood
To the greenwood, greenwood tree


Here is a bunny

Here is a bunny with ears so funny
And here is his hole in the ground.
When there's a noise he hears,
He pricks up his ears
And jumps in his hole with a bound.

Sweet Little Nut

Sweet little nut, sweet little nut in your shell,
Sweet little nut, sweet little nut, who can tell?
When you grow up, when you grow up will you be,
Sweet little nut, sweet little nut, tall as me?


Trot old Joe

Trot old Joe, Trot old Joe
You ride better than any horse I know.
Trot old Joe, Trot old Joe
You're the best horse in the country, oh.
Whoa, Joe!


This is the Way the Lady Rides

This is the way the lady rides
Ga-lump, ga-lump, ga-lump, ga-lump.
This is the way the gentleman rides
Ga-lump-a-trot, ga-lump-a-trot.
This is the way the farmer rides
Hobble-dee-ha, hobble-dee-ha.
This is the way the hunter rides
Gallopy, gallopy, gallopy
Over the fence!


BUTTERCUP, BUTTERCUP

Buttercup, buttercup waking up
Catch a sunbeam in your cup
Hold it tight, Let it go
Ree-ra ree-ra ro


WRIGGLY WORM

Under a stone where the earth was firm
I found a wriggly wriggly worm
Good morning I said, how are you today?
But the wriggly worm, just wriggled away


Squirrel Nutkin

Squirrel Nutkin with your coat of brown,
Finest fur in woodland town,
Your bright eyes look round to see
Where the sweetest nuts may be.
