The Rules on the Bus

Do you ever see a bus? What does it look like? What color is it? Have you ever ridden on a bus?

When we wait for the bus we're on the sidewalk,
on the sidewalk, on the sidewalk.
When we wait for the bus we're on the sidewalk,
All around the town.

Getting on the bus we take our turn,
take our turn, take our turn.
Getting on the bus we take our turn,
All around the town.

The children on the bus stay in their seats,
Stay in their seats, stay in their seats.
The children on the bus stay in their seats,
All around the town.

Arms and heads stay in the bus,
stay in the bus, stay in the bus.
Arms and heads stay in the bus,
All around the town.

The children on the bus talk quietly,
quietly, quietly.
The children on the bus talk quietly,
All around the town.

The driver on the bus says listen to him,
listen to him, listen to him.
The driver on the bus says listen to him,
All around the town.

Getting off the bus we take our turn,
take our turn, take our turn.
Getting off the bus we take our turn,
All around the town.

Try This

Practice Street Safety today.

You can go outside or if it too cold, then it’s ok to stay inside and practice. Talk about the right way to cross a street: hold hands, look left then right then left. Point out any safety signs along the way. You and your child can even make signs for inside the house.
