More to do
Dramatic Play: Set up chairs to resemble bus seating with a driver seat in front.
Place a small bucket on the floor next to the driver seat. Ask one child to be the
bus driver. Give each child (except the driver) a block to use as a token. While
“riding on the bus,” sing “Wheels On the Bus,” changing the destination to
where ever the children want to go.
