For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

Song: The Wheels on the Truck

The wheels on the truck go round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheels on the truck go round and round
All though the town.

The scoop on the truck goes CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP,
CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP,
CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP
The scoop on the truck goes CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP
All through the town

The bell on the truck goes ding, ding, ding,
Ding, ding , ding
Ding, ding, ding
The bell on the truck goes ding, ding,
All through the town.

The siren on the truck goes WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP
WHOOP, WHOOP. WHOOP,
WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP
The siren on the truck goes WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP,
All through the town

The ball on the truck goes BAM,BAM, BAM,
BAM, BAM, BAM,
BAM, BAM, BAM,
The ball on the truck goes BAM, BAM, BAM,
All through the town.

The drum on the truck goes, WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
The drum on the truck goes WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
All through the town.

Movement Song: 

Rumble, Rumble Monster Max
Can you jump those junkyard stacks?
Up above the trash so high,
Like a rocket in the sky.
Rumble, rumble, Monster Max.
Yep, he jumped those junkyard stacks.

Song:

Three Loud Trucks.
Three Loud Trucks.
See how they zoom
See how they zoom.
They all jumped over
The muck and goo.
They skidded and screeched
And their mufflers blew.
Did you ever see such a crazy crew?
As three loud trucks,
Three Loud Trucks. 

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
Wave high, wave low,
I think it’s time, we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips,
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye,
Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”

• Try reading a different story or a different time during the day. Reading with a very young child is primarily about building positive experiences with books, not finishing every book you start.

Wake up feet and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle
Wake up feet, wake up feet
Wake up and wiggle in the morning.

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
(rub hands together, back and forth while pointing them up in the air)
We’re going to the moon.
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
We’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip,
Climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
We’re going to the moon.
We are flying all around
Into space where stars are found
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We’re going to the moon.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1,
(hold 5 fingers up and count down)
Blast off!

Choo-Choo Train
Here is the choo-choo train
Puffing down the track.
Now it’s going forward,
Now it’s going back.
Now the bell is ringing,
Now the whistle blows.
What a lot of noise it makes
Everywhere it goes.

Hands Go Up
Hands go up and hands go down.
I can turn myself around.
I can reach down to my shoe.
I can listen so can you.
Now let’s sit, I’ll show you how.
The next story is starting now.

Closing Song: I Think It’s Time We Have To Go
I think it’s time, we have to go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes.
Wave your tongue, wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips.
Blow me a kiss with your fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye.
Now it’s time to wave goodbye.

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Clap and Sing Hello! (tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello
We wave and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

We stomp and sing hello,
We stomp and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side
Hold hands at side
Then behind my back they hide
Put hands behind back
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so
Wiggle your fingers
Shake them fast, shake them slow
Shake fingers fast and slow
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap hands
Then I rest them in my lap
Rest hands in lap
Now they’re quiet as can be.
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Drive, Drive, Drive (tune: Row, Row, 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 truck slow down.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we are in town.

We Can
We can jump, jump, jump,
We can hop, hop, hop,
We can clap, clap, clap,
We can stomp, stomp, stomp.
We can nod our heads for yes,
We can shake our heads for no.
We can bend our knees a tiny bit,
And sit down slow

Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin.
Open your mouth, but do not let them in!
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap

Stomp your feet
Blink your eyes
Wave goodbye!

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Flannel Board Song: This Little Train
(Sung to: “This Old Man”)
This little train, painted black
It comes chugging down the track
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”                                 (suit actions to words)
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
It 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
It’s the fanciest car you’ve seen,
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.

This little car; painted grey
It takes you places far away
With a “Choo-choo; Toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home.

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

Movement Rhyme:  The Airplane
Airplane going up,
Airplane going down,
Airplane turning all around.
Airplane  going left,
Airplane going right,
Airplane  going up, out of sight.

Movement Song: Row Row Row
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream.

Drive, drive, drive, your truck
Slowly down the road,
Carefully, carefully, carefully, carefully
What a heavy load.

Ride, ride, ride, your bike
Quickly down the street,
Cheerfully, cheerfully, cheerfully, cheerfully
Wave at all you meet.
