The Wheels on the Bus

The wheels on the bus go round and round, 

Round and round, round and round.

The wheels on the bus go round and round, 

All through the town.

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish…

The doors on the bus go open and shut…

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep...

The babies on the bus go waa, waa, waa...

The mommies on the bus go shh, shh, shh...

The wheels on the bus go round and round... 

(make wipers, doors, and other gestures)  

The Itsy Bitsy Spider 

The itsy bitsy spider 

Went up the water spout. 

Down came the rain 

And washed the spider out. 

Up came the sun 

And dried up all the rain, 

And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

Five Little Ducks 

Five little ducks went out to play, (hold up five fingers) 

Over the hills and far away. (Hide hand behind you back)

And the Mama Duck said, “Quack, quack, quack.” (use other hand hand to mimic duck’s bill)

Four little ducks came waddling back. (hold up four fingers)

(repeat with 4, 3, 2 little ducks going out to play)

One little duck went out to play, 

Over the hills and far away. 

And the Mama Duck said, “Quack, quack, quack,”

But no little ducks came waddling back. 

Until Daddy Duck said "QUACK, QUACK, QUACK"

And five little ducks came waddling back!

Where is Thumbkin? (sung to “Are You Sleeping?”) 

(start with hands behind your back) Where is thumbkin? Where is thumbkin? 

Here I am! (bring one thumb out) 

Here I am! (bring other thumb out) 

How are you today, sir? (nod a thumb) 

Very well, I thank you. (nod the other thumb) 

Run away! (put one hand behind back) 

Run away! (put other hand behind back)

Did You Ever See a Baby? 

Did you ever see a baby, a baby, a baby? 

Did you ever see a baby go this way and that? (rock from side to side) 

Go this way and that way, (forward and back) 

And that way and this way. (side to side) 

Did you ever see a baby go this way and that? (forward and back)
