Construction Story Time

Welcome Song: Clap and Sing Hello (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!
We wave and sing hello // We stomp and sing hello

Action Rhyme: Dump Truck
Dump truck, dump truck, (steer)
Bumpin’ down the road. (bounce up and down)
Spilling gravel as you travel,
With your heavy load.
Bumpety bumpety bump,
Dump truck, dump truck — DUMP! (lean over)

Song: The Construction Worker Song (to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus)
This is the way we pound the nails, pound the nails, pound the nails.
This is the way we pound the nails so early in the morning.

Saw the wood // Stack the bricks // Paint the walls

Closing Song: It’s Time to Say Goodbye to All Our Friends (to the tune of She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain When She Comes)
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
It’s time to say goodbye,
Wave your hands and wink your eye,
Now it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
