In the City

OPENING SONG:   Walking, Walking



All Through My Town by Jean Reidy Animals by Simms Taback by Anastasia Suen


The Seals on the Bus
The seals on the bus go arp, arp, arp
arp, arp, arp, arp, arp, arp
The seals on the bus go arp, arp, arp
All around the town.

The rabbits on the bus go up and down…
The snakes on the bus go hiss, hiss, hiss
The monkeys on the bus go eeh, eeh, eeh,
The tigers on the bus go roar, roar, roar
The geese on the bus go honk, honk, honk
The people on the bus go help, help, help!

Traffic Light
Green Says, “Go!”
Go! Go! Go!(march fast in place)
Yellow says, “Slow”
Slow… slow… slow… (march slow)
And Red says, “Stop!”
Stop Stop Stop!(freeze stop)

GO! GO! GO! (march fast)
Slow… slow… slow (march slow)
STOP!!! (stop)

City Skyline
I used black construction paper and gave the kids white crayons to color buildings, stars, and roads. I also had foam transportation stickers that they used to decorate their skyline pictures.
