This is the Tree

Works well with flannelboard, or could do it as a fingerplay:
This is the tree bare & brown These are the brown leaves fluttering down. (repeat with orange, yellow & red leaves)
This is the squirrel with eyes so bright, Hunting for nuts with all his might!
This is the hole where day by day, Nut after nut he stores away.
When winter comes with its cold & storm, He'll sleep curled up All snug & warm!
