After singing the song the Wheels on the Bus, we made silly alliteration sentences using the first phoneme of our names. The students really enjoyed singing the new song with all of their friend's names. This lesson came from Deanna Jump's unit on Literacy and Math Fun with Names which can be purchased at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Literacy-and-Math-Fun-with-Names
We sung the song The Wheels on the Bus and read the book The Wheels on the School Bus. Then we identified the naming words (nouns) and made a list of people, places, and things that were in the song and the book.
