My Bicycle--finger play
One wheel, two wheels on the ground
(revolve hand in forward circle)
My feet make the pedal go round and round
(pedal with feet)
Handle bars help me steer so straight
(pretend to steer)
Down the sidewalk and through the gate!

My Bike--song 
 (sung to "The Farmer in the Dell")

Pedal round and round,
(roll hands around each other)
Pedal round and round,
I steer my bike
(pretend to steer bike)
To where I like.
Pedal round and round.

Ride, Ride, Ride Your Bike.
 (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)  
Ride, ride, ride your bike;
You will go so fast!
Hear the wind and feel the breeze,
Then watch the sky go past!

  Go on a wheel hunt around your house or neighborhood—look at different size wheels- on cars, toys wheels, bikes, lawmowers, tractors. Talk about sizes of wheels or thickness of the wheels. Discuss the shape- circles and see can you find other items or things that are round that are not wheels.
