Listen and Learn Music: All About Autumn

All About Autumn

It is officially fall! Preparations are being made at The Hope Institute for this weekend's Fall Festival, which include homemade scarecrows from each classroom (for a song about scarecrows, click here) and decorated leaves.

Though "Fall Into Fall" has been our official song of the season since last year, I wanted to add another one to the rotation. "All About Autumn" includes the major events in the coming months, and although I could have easily added several more verses, I decided that three was enough :) Take a listen:

I want to tell you all about autumn,
That’s another name for fall.
It begins at the end of September,
When the days are short and the trees are tall.

Autumn is a time to change the clocks,
We fall an hour behind.
We get an extra hour to sleep at night,
‘Cause that’s what happens when we rewind.


Autumn is a time for Halloween,
Wearing costumes while we trick-or-treat.
Walking around our neighborhood,
Collecting so much candy to eat.


Autumn is a time for Thanksgiving,
Let’s be thankful for the food on our plate.
And all of the good things in our lives,
With our family, we celebrate.


One of the things I'm looking forward to this autumn is the end of daylight savings. While I know most people would like the sun to stay up longer, I'm eager for it to rise earlier! I wake up at 4:30 am during the week in order to hit the gym, and it is always so much easier to get going when it's lighter outside. What are you looking forward to in the next few months?
