Rhyme: This is a Choo Choo Train

This is a choo choo train (Child becomes a train by squatting)
Puffing down the track  (Child does actions)
Now its going forward,  (child goes forward)
Now its going back.  (Child goes back)
Now the bell is ringing  (pull make believe bell rope)
What a lot of noise it makes  (cover ears and make train noises)
Everywhere it goes.  (Children move around the room at random.)

Song : This Little Train (Tune- This Old Man)

This little train, painted black
It comes chugging down the track
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.

This little car painted blue
It has seats for me and you
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.

This little car painted yellow
Shimmies and shakes like a bowl of jello
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.

This little car, painted green
The fanciest car you’ve ever seen,
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.

This caboose; it is red
It will take you home to bed
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.
