Songs & Fingerplays

Off To Kindergarten - sung to "Oscar Meyer Theme Song"

Oh, I'm ready to go off to kindergarten
That is where I really want to beeeee....
Cause when I go off to kindergarten,
Everyone will think I'm really neeeat.

Arts & Crafts

School Buses

One thing I've done is make construction paper buses & wheels (kids can do cutting depending on age). They assemble the buses. If I think of it enough ahead of time, I take pics of the kids that will be going on the bus and let them glue their heads into the bus windows ~ otherwise I just let them draw the kids on the bus. Also the older ones can practice writing the number of the bus & the school name.

Theme Ideas

Chicka Boom Boom is a great theme I've used many times. Read the book and start introducing the alphabet one letter at a time. I did a project that started with each letter, and also talked about what words start with "A". For ex- A- apple printing. B- balloon prints etc... What does it sound like? I teach 4's & 5's, so since they are older, they can do this.
