Fun in First is having a Back to School Activity Linky Party!kidscount1234.com . If you haven't seen her site or heard her speak, you have to check her out--she's wonderful! Anyways, back to the activity...it is a class book and song called, "This Friend on the Bus." It is sung to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus." The students practice writing their name within the song lyrics, then they draw a picture of their face, or you can glue a photo of their face in the school bus. Then, the class gathers in a circle and everyone introduces him or herself. After each introduction, the class sings the song that is written on that child's book page. It is really fun and a great way to start learning everyone's name! Plus, you can bind it into a class book that the kids will love to read and reread! Here is the book cover and student page if you'd like it!
