Scribble Fun

Your toddler may not be making any letters yet, but there is a good chance he is practicing writing. Toddler writing can range from making a single mark on a page to filling up the entire page with scribbles or even scribbling out horizontal lines that begin to resemble writing. These simple scribbles are important stages that will help your toddler develop writing skills. Find time for supervised scribbling whenever you can and give meaning to your little one's marks by placing them on the wall or even sending them as a letter to someone special. And don't forget to let him watch you write too!


SING

The Wheels on the Bus

(Roll hands as pretend "wheels" and act out the rest of the song)

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 people on the bus go up and down,
Up and down, up and down.
The people on the bus go up and down,
All through the town.

Additional verses:
The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish...
The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep...
The lights on the bus go on and off...
The doors on the bus go open and shut...

Feel free to add any other verses you can think of!
