I started this lesson by singing The Wheels on the Bus song. Then we read The Wheels on the School Bus. Then, the children had a great time making up our own Wheels on the bus song using the sound of the first letter of our name. Finally, we constructed our own school bus and created our rhymes to go with the first letter of our names. This idea came from Deanna Jump's Name unit, which can be purchased at teacherspayteachers.com.
