How to Use Craft
1. The first use would be simply as a coloring page. As the kids color, you can talk about the color of a school bus, the driver, where the school bus goes everyday, etc.
2. I used this school bus template as a learning tool when teaching ESL to young kids. Each child was given a bus cutout to wear around his neck. I then gave each student a play steering wheel and we "zoomed"
around the room singing a school bus song .
