All aboard! Choo-choo, we love trains. How about you?
Those of you who have been to our fantastic kids’ programs like Move With Music may recognize the “Train Song.” We love to sing the train song when we are in circle time. The best part is that it’s easy to do!
First, rub your hands together to mimic the choo, choo, choo, choo rhythm of the train. Then sing:
“Choo-choo, choo-choo, choo-choo, choo, Up the Railroad tracks! Choo-Choo, Choo-choo, choo-choo, choo-choo, then we come right back!
First we go to (child’s name)’s house and then we go to (another child’s name)’s house and then we go to (another’s house)’s and then we come right back!
Try working in fun “destinations” for your child. You can “stop the train” at friend’s houses or grandparents’ houses or at the grocery store or post office! You can speed up your train or slow it down by speeding up or slowing down the swoosh movement of your hands.
