“Toot Toot Beep Beep” by Emma Garcia

Drive, Drive, Drive Your Car (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Drive, drive, drive your car (steering wheel motion)
All around the town
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Up the hills and down

Turn, turn, turn the key (twist wrist)
Make the engine roar
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Let’s go to the store

Press, press, press the pedal (push foot down)
Give the engine gas
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Now we’re going fast

Turn, turn, turn the wheel (steering motion)
That is how we steer
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Make a turn right here (lean to the side)

Where is Truck (Tune: Where is Thumbkin)

Where is pick-up truck? Where is pick-up truck? (hide thumbs behind back)
Here I am. Here I am. (bring thumbs out front)
How are you today sir? Very well, I thank you. (wiggle thumbs)
Drive away. Drive away. (hide thumbs behind back)

(repeat with other types of vehicles)

Five Yellow Buses

Five yellow buses (hold up fingers)
Around the town they zoom
One makes a stop
And others go vroom
(count down)

Wheels on the Bus

How it Went: Today’s program was a lot of fun! Children were really into the books and wanted me to read more (always a great feeling).
