We've been practicing friends' names, singing to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus." For example, "Emily on the bus goes, 'hi, hi, hi!"
The first day we did this activity was St. Patrick's Day, so the leprechaun got to ride, too :)
Last week, a bus like this and a page of all the children's pictures were sent home. Put the bus over the picture page, and practice the song with your child!
