Songs with Props

Happy Friday!

Today I'm sharing a song that is sure to be a favorite among your younger students!
Why am I so sure?  Well, let's just say one word:  Trains!

If you read my last post, you are already aware of the awesome train track tape that I stumbled upon at the store.  (I'm still excited that this product even exists!)  If you missed my last post, you can scroll down or you can find it here.

Well, I decided to write another song that I could use with younger students while incorporating the train track tape (the prop for this song).  So, before you begin the song, ideally you would have the train track tape on the floor before the students/group enter the session area.  You can even use this as part of your structure to the beginning of the session, "Everyone find a spot around the train track."

This song features a chorus that repeats after each verse:
"Choo-choo, choo-choo,
Chugga, chugga, chugga
Chugga, chugga, chugga
Choo-choo, choo-choo"

The verses call on the students to follow directions and participate in 3 movements:
Stomp our feet
Pump our arms
Raise one hand high and pull down

Click on the link below to hear the Choo-Choo Train song.
(This song is also available for purchase via the link as well.)

I can't wait to use this song with some of my younger groups!  How about you?
A song lyric sheet is available upon request for this song as well.
Please email me at to request a song lyric sheet.

Have a great weekend!
