Notes
Another option to enhance your program is to incorporate a basket of fall silk leaves and throwing the leaves in the air while saying the "Las hojitas" rhyme. The kids like to see the leaves float in the air and at the end of the rhyme, they like to help pick up the leaves and put them back in the basket.
