Autumn in Pre -Primary

Our 5- year- old students made a beautiful Autumn Dominoes which they gave to their youngest mates as a present.
They also sang an Autumn song : “ All the leaves are falling down”.  They did it wonderfully. 

This is the song:

All the leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down  
All the leaves are falling down, yellow, red and brown
We´ll rake them in a big big pile, big big pile, big big pile
We´ll rake them in a big big pile, and let´s all jump in
Jump into the pile of leaves, pile of leaves, pile of leaves
Jump into the pile of leaves, 1 2 3!!

Here there are some photographs .
