Down by the Station

Down by the station
Early in the morning
See the little puffer bellies, All in a row
See the station master
Turn the little handle
Puff, puff, toot, toot, off we go

I'm a Little Airplane - sung to "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little airplane,
I can fly,
Here's my throttle,
Give me a try.
When I get all revved up,
I can fly,
Off the runway,
To the sky!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat,
gently down the stream,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Arts & Crafts

Paint and Car Wash

Fill pie pans with different colors of paint let the children drive matchbox cars through the paint and onto paper. When finished...they can wash their cars in the car wash!! Just use a tub of soapy water and toothbrushes.

Margarine-Tub Sailboat

Need: Margarine tub, clay, paper, crayons and markers, straw

Press a ball of clay in the bottom of a margarine tub. Insert a straw in the clay; then tape a decorated paper into the top of the straw.

In The Kitchen

Apple Sailboat Snack

Have the children make apple sailboats from an apple slice, a triangular piece of cheese, & a toothpick.

Marshmallow Trains

Make marshmallow trains. Use pretzel sticks to hook the "cars" together and use peanut butter to glue cheerios on as wheels and other features.

Theme Ideas

At our school (we teach Special education preschool, so our 3-5-year-olds ride the bus), we film each child getting off of the bus or out of their car on the first day of school. We then let the children watch the video tape during circle time. Then we sing "this is the way we go to school, go to school, go to school, this is the way we go to school early in the morning."
