Bus Around Town: Fingerplay/Song

busAll Around the Neighborhood
Words and Actions by CK Emanuel
To the tune of the traditional folk song, “Pop! Goes the Weasel”

All around the neighborhood
WITH A FLAT HAND, DRAW A CIRCLE HORIZONTALLY IN FRONT OF YOU
The bus drove the people;
MOVE HANDS AS IF GRASPING A STEERING WHEEL
Past the library, past the bank
HAND FLAT TO SIDE, CURVE HAND UP IN A ARCH
Honk! Goes the driver!
AS IF PRESSING A HORN

SWAP OUT THE THIRD LINE TO INCLUDE ADDITIONAL PLACES IN THE TOWN:
Past the bakery, past the school
Past the station, past the park
Past the cinema, past the pool
