Songs/Rhymes
Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,

Life is but a dream.

--Traditional
*I like to sing this song multiple times with the preschoolers, speeding up each round until we're not really even singing anymore. They find this absolutely hilarious, and they're usually tired enough to sit still for a story afterwards.

Did You Ever See an Airplane?
Sung to: "Did You Ever See a Lassie?"
Did you ever see an airplane,
An airplane, and airplane?
Did you ever see an airplane
Way up in the sky?
There are big ones and small ones
And short ones and tall ones.
Did you ever see an airplane
Way up in the sky?


Activities

Sung to: Ten Little Indians

Going for a ride in my little ______ train

Going for a ride in my little ______ train

Going for a ride in my little ______ train
Chugga, chugga, chugga, chugga

Choo, choo!

Where Does This Go? - Preschoolers
Mix up the place and ask the children where each vehicle goes. Get them wrong on purpose, and watch them be very eager to correct you!






 



Crafts

Airplane Pictures. Materials: Light blue construction paper, die cut airplanes, die cut clouds, tape, glue, and crayons. The toddlers glued the airplane and clouds to their paper and colored them in.
