Our September songs and art will be bushels of fun for your preschoolers. The action songs are always fun to do over and over! Try adding some apple tasting and cooking activities for a fun week.
Below you’ll find September themes and the songs we sing around each theme.
It’s All About Me
I’ve Got Two Eyes (video)
I’ve got two eyes, oh yeah. I’ve got two eyes, oh yeah. I’ve got two eyes and they’re both the same size. I’ve got two ears, oh yeah, I’ve got two ears oh yeah. I’ve got two ears and they’re both the same size. Add more body parts as needed. The children can choose the parts to count!
Later in the month we study apples. These are the songs we include for the week.
I’m A Little Apple Tree
I’m a little apple tree. (Hold arms up as branches) All my apples grow on me. I mustn’t sneeze, I mustn’t cough, or all my apples will fall off! (Cover your sneezes with our elbow)
Way Up High In The Apple Tree (video)
Way up high in the apple tree
(Stretch both arms above your head, hands open)
Two little apples smiled at me
(Close hands into fists)
I shook that tree as hard as I could
(Shake the tree)
Down came the apples
(Bring fists down)
Mmmm, they were good!
Back To School
We start off the year with school buses in the block area along with the little people to take to school. Our first art project is painting school buses.
These buses will go on this bulletin board.
Wheels On The Bus
The wheels on the bus go round and round (make rolling motion with hands) round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bus go round and round, all through the town.
The people on the bus go up and down (stretch body up and down while seated) up and down, up and down. The people on the bus go up and down, all through the town.
The baby on the bus goes waa waa waa (pretend to cry rubbing eyes) waa waa waa, waa waa waa. The baby on the bus goes waa waa waa all through the town.
The mommy on the bus says shh shh shh (index finger over shushing mouth) shh shh shh, shh shh shh. the mommy on the bus goes shh shh shh all through the town.
The daddy on the bus says baby don’t cry (wag index finger) baby don’t cry, baby don’t cry. The daddy on the bus says baby don’t cry all through the town.
Variations: Additional verses, driver on the bus says move on back; door on the bus goes open and shut; wipers on the bus go swish swish swish (only if its raining outside); lights on the bus go blink, blink, blink…
We change the place the bus goes! Rather than “…all through the town” our bus goes “…all through the city, mountains, oceans, even all through the day care! Fun stuff
Mary Had A Little Lamb
Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb. Mary had a little lamb, its fleece as white as snow. Everywhere that Mary went, Mary went, Mary went Everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go. He followed her to school one day, school one day school one day. He followed her to school one day, which was against the rules. He made the children laugh and play, laugh and play, laugh and play. He made the children laugh and play, to see a lamb at school.
