    Re: Please suggest an activity for Kindergarten English day

    Well, I was going to suggest the "Wheels on the Bus" song, but that's not exact an Earth-friendly topic, is it? It's a fun song for children to sing and act out, though.

    Lyrics:
    The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round
    'Round and 'round
    'Round and 'round.
    The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round
    All through the town.

    (when singing the words "round and round" the chilren make circular motions with their hands, as if drawing a wheel in the air)

    The wipers on the bus go Swish, swish, swish;
    Swish, swish, swish;
    Swish, swish, swish.
    The wipers on the bus go Swish, swish, swish,
    all through the town.

    (when singing "swish, swish, swish" children bend their arms at the elbows back and forth imitating winshield wipers)

    Here's a full version of the song with all the appropriate gestures included:
    The Wheels on the Bus

    Here's the melody, in cause you're unfamiliar with the tune.
