Paint The Wheels on Your Bus

 English for Kids. The Wheels on The Bus

      "The Wheels on the Bus" is an anonymous United States folk song dating to the mid-20th century. It is a popular children's song, particularly among pre-teens, in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom and is often sung by children on bus trips to keep themselves amused. It has a very repetitive rhythm, making the song both easy for a large number of people to sing, as well as having the potential to infuriate adults as chorus after chorus drones on, in a manner similar to the song 99 Bottles of Beer. It is based on the traditional British song Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush.
       These school buses were painted by my kindergarten students during my student teaching. The project actually included two parts. First the children were taught to draw "balloon people" before cutting them out to paste onto their school bus paintings. I'll include a link to that exercise when I have posted here. For now, enjoy all of the sweet little orange school bus paintings.
