Transportation Day 5: Fire Trucks

Fire Trucks

Today was T’s favorite… fire trucks.  He just loves them so much.  We had a fun snack, crafts, literature, and songs.

Read:

  • What Does it do? Fire Truck by Josh Gregory

Music:  Ten Little Firefighters

Ten little firefighters sleeping in a row.  (Hold 10 fingers flat like their sleeping.)

Ding, ding goes the bell.  (Put a fist up and pull down.)

And down the pole they go.  (Hold one hand on top of the other like holding a pole.)

Off on the engine oh, oh, oh.  (Pretend to hold a steering wheel.)

Using the big hose, so, so, so.  (Pretend to spray a hose.)

When all the fire’s out, home so slow.  (Hold a steering wheel again.)

Back into bed, all in a row.  (Lay 10 fingers flat again.)
