PLAY

Sign Search

Letters and words are all around us -- on signs!  Road signs, store signs and billboards are perfect tools for teaching kids about letters and print.  Next time you are out and about, see how many signs your child can recognize.  Talk about the letters and the image on the sign.  Start collecting pictures of some familiar signs (find these on flyers and advertisements) and make a book your child can read all by themselves!


SING

Drive Your Truck

(to the tune of: "Row Your Boat")

Drive, drive, drive your truck,
All around the town!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Up the hills and down.

Turn, turn, turn the key,
Make the engine roar!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Let’s go to the store.

Press, press, press the pedal,
Give the engine gas!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we’re going fast!

Turn, turn, turn the wheel,
That is how we steer!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Make a turn right here!

Push, push, push the brake,
Make the car slow down,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we are in town!
