Garbage Truck Alphabet Activity
Someone on PUBYAC mentioned they did an activity with this title. They used a box with a picture of a garbage truck on it, and then they had the children put a letter in the truck for the "alphabet soup" portion of the book. The preschool teachers I did this with were really impressed, and the kids loved it. My recommendation would be to hand out the letters right before the soup part, instead of at the beginning of the book. I ended up with some mangled letters that way.

Song: 

Picking Up Trash
(mime picking things up while singing)

We're picking up trash and putting it in a basket.
Picking up trash and putting it in a basket.
Picking up trash and putting it in a basket.
Way down back in the backyard patch.

Hello, and thank you for choosing one of my books, Smash! Mash! Crash! There Goes the Trash! for one of your storytime books!

If you are interested, my next book comes out in June: It's titled "A Crazy Day At the Critter Cafe."

Thanks again,
