Transportation

CRAFTS
SHAPE TRUCKS
Made with pre cut out shapes.  
I gave the children shapes and let them put together their own truck.

DUMP TRUCK
Made out of an empty CD case, scraps, glue sticks and construction paper.


GETTING AROUND THE CITY
Made with construction paper, crayons, glue sticks, hand cut out road, 
white crayon (to make dash line on the road) and car cut outs (google search).





The children learned how to draw squares.

This little guy couldn't stop saying vroom, vroom!

PACK YOUR BAGS
Provided the children with this traveling suitcase pattern. Inside the suitcase, have the children paste pictures of things they might take on a trip (you can pre-cut a variety of items from magazine pictures). Leave the folders open until they’ve dried. The next day continue the project by having the children lick stamps from foreign countries and paste them on the outside of their “suitcases”. They looked like travel stickers. The stamps came in a big package and were very inexpensive.

FIELD TRIP
We took a trip to our local fire company.


WORD OF THE WEEK
Go

SONGS
RED, YELLOW, GREEN
Tune: Three Blind Mice

Red, yellow, green.
Red, yellow, green.
What do they mean?
What do they mean?
Red means stop, yellow means slow,
Green means go.
Now we know!
Red, yellow, green.


THE DRIVER SONG

Dan the driver has car, beep: beep, beep, beep, beep

And on that car he has a horn: beep, beep, beep, beep, beep

With a beep, beep here and a beep, peep there, here a beep everywhere a beep, beep



Pete the Pilot has a plane: zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom. 

And on that plane there are some wings: zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom. 

With a zoom, zoom, here, and a zoom there, here a zoom everywhere a zoom, zoom

The engineer has a train: chug, chug, chug, chug, chug.
And on that train he has a smokestack: chug, chug, chug, chug, chug.
With a chug, chug here and a chug, chug there, here a chug everywhere a chug, chug


CAR, BUS, SONG
tune: Jingle Bells
C-A-R, C-A-R that’s how you spell car
B-U-S, B-U-S that’s how you spell bus
V-A-N, V-A-N that’s how you spell van
Transportation helps us, I hope you understand!

I'M DRIVING IN MY CAR
tune: Bingo
Look at me, oh, can't you see,
I'm driving in my CAR!
C-A-R, (beep, beep)
C-A-R, (beep, beep)
C-A-R, (beep, beep)
I'm driving in my CAR!
Repeat verses using other three letter transportation words (ex. VAN, BUS)

GAMES
LICENSE PLATE MATCHING
Make up face license plates on index cards.
Have the children match the plate by color, number and state.

CAR PAINT AND CAR WASH
Fill pie pans with different colors of paint let the children drive matchbox cars through the paint and onto paper.
 When finished, they can wash their cars in the car wash!! Just use a tub of soapy water and toothbrushes!!

OUTSIDE FUN
Gather some toy cars, trucks and trains & a supply of sidewalk chalk. Take the children outside & choose a concrete or black top area. Encourage them to draw roads, buildings, & houses.
