Wheels On the Bus Preschool Storytime

Storytime for 3 to 5 year olds:

  • Number literacy activity flannelboard - People At the Bus Stop (a counting and number literacy flannelboard written by Carol Hopkins)
Directions: Hand out a numbered person to each child. The children come place their person on the board when the bus stop called out matches the number on the person. If you have a large group, there can be multiple people at each bus stop.  After each bus stop count the number of people on the bus. 

Here comes the bus,
Driving down the street.
Stopping at bus stop number ______. 
How many people are on the bus now?

  • Stand-up activity - "Wheels On the Bus" action song from Six Little Ducks by Kimbo

  • Activity - Twinkle, Twinkle Traffic Light (action fingerplay song to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star")
Twinkle, twinkle traffic light
Round the corner shining bright
Red means stop,
Green means go,
And yellow means go very slow.
Twinkle, twinkle traffic light
Round the corner shining bright.



  • Art experience - Cut and glue black circle wheels and blue rectangle windows onto a yellow paper bus outline
