Transportation

Transportation is one of the kids favorite units to talk about.  They love making the cars and trucks go  VROOM!  And of course, you can't talk about transportation without making a traffic light.   The kids learned a song that explains the meaning of each light and we played a 'Stop and Go' game that they couldn't stop giggling over. 
side note: Aunt Tami had the traffic light upside down when helping the kids put the lights on. 
I don't think they noticed. =D


One of my favorite books is "Little Blue Truck" by Alice Schertle.  If you don't have the book, I found a read-along video which you can find when you scroll down the page.
The muddy blue truck craft goes along perfectly with this book.


GAMES 
Land, Air, Water Sorting

Counting Airplanes in the Sky

STOP & GO 
It is simply having the kids walk around the room (sometimes they would run or spin in circles). Then yell STOP!  They really thought it was hysterical to freeze in different positions.
Then yell GO! Let the fun begins again.

SONGS

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