I hope you will get lots of mileage out of this little gem. This is a simple, delightful song I learned years ago in my first Kodaly certification course. I teach this tune (the fall verse) to K-2 children in late September and revisit it as the seasons change, moving from a singing game (hiding and finding a fake bird or flower) and rhythm exploration (mapping with silk leaves) to iconic notation and composition activities, depending on students' readiness.
The children enjoy creating new lyrics for this simple but lovely melody as the seasons change. As an extension, older children enjoy switching up the solfege/rhythm cards and creating something new.
This file contains the song notation and seasonal iconic notation cards. Enjoy adapting these to your students' abilities. I have a few pictures of students engaged in exploring and composing on my BLOG.
