Five Fast Race Cars
Five fast race cars speeding round the track.
The first car said, " I can't look back!"
The second car said, "Oh no! I'm out of gas!"
The third car said, "Beep! Beep! I'm fast!"
The fourth car said, "Watch my tires spin."
The fifth car said, "Vroom vroom! I win!"
Then beep went a horn and flash went the lights,
And five fast race cars sped out of sight!
Here are my 10 little race cars...
1 little 2 little 3 little race cars; 4 little 5 little 6 little race cars; 7 little 8 little 9 little race cars;
10 race cars zoom past!
10 little 9 little 8 little race cars; 7 little 6 little 5 little race cars; 4 little 3 little 2 little race cars;
1 race car is last! (Feel free to tweak this!! please!!)
You can tell I used a diecut for the car shapes. They've been handled and stretched a bit but they are still lots of Fun with Friends at Storytime!
I did a craft at the time I did this storytime but you could easily adapt the idea for a Home Extension. I had copied a map onto 11 x 17 paper and set out pans with some green paint and small cars. The kiddos 'painted' by dipping the car wheels in the paint and driving them on the map. I had a small paper green car for them to glue to the map after they painted. FUN!! You could hand out the map paper and small car cutout and tell them to take it home to color or paint.
