FINGERPLAYS/ACTION RHYMES:

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!

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.
