A fun activity to do with K-2 music students, or in a musical classroom. Using the well known song "The Wheels on the Bus", teach children to pull apart the song and be creative in making their own lyrics and imagery. Who could be on the bus? Or what? A good book to go along with this activity is "The Seals on the Bus" by Lenny Hort.
This activity is a big favorite among my K-2 music students; last year we created our pages and turned them into a book, which we gave to their classroom teachers on the last day of music class.
Encourage singing (what child doesn't want to sing along with a song they've created?) both in the music class and the classroom! Children and teachers will treasure these books.
Included are a title page, a first page which follows the normal lyrics to the song, and then a customizable page. Print one copy of the first two pages, and then a copy of Page 3 for each child in the class to fill out and illustrate.

Have fun, and please contact me if you have any questions!
