We are continuing the study of Transportation! Children will learn
- Which forms of transportation are similar and different
- Different modes of air land and sea transportation and who operates them
- Children will discuss the different clothing of community workers and operators of transportation.
Themes & Activities
- What kinds of transportation do we use and why?
- How are various modes of transportation the same and different?
- What types of clothing/uniform do community workers wear?
- Who operates vehicles in my community? What do they wear?
- Creating trains out of egg cartons, we will encourage children to build bridges out of art materials/blocks. We will build traffic signs and build roads. Children will also make a vehicle of their choice.
- Children will create maps, paper airplanes, keys, and passports.
- Children will learn of different forms of transportation and share any experiences they have.

Building Blocks: (Math)
The children will continue to identify written numerals 1-10, they will count objects to 10, and sort and classify and make patterns using different types of manipulatives.
We will also be working on simple addition/subtraction in the game How Many Now? Where we count some counters and add/subtract some counters and ask the students to tell us how many we have now?
We will continue to work on counting to 10 with understanding and counting objects. We will learn how to identify shapes by their size, corners, and formation.
Take Time to have daily discussions!
Look for letters and numbers on vehicles you see outside. Disucuss what they represent.
Look for the different clothing different workers wear.
See if your child can identify who drives a bus or operates the train.
Read, read, read! Read daily to your child. Engage in open ended conversations such as: what do you predict will happen next? Why do you think that will happen? What do you think the story will be about? What problem was the character facing in the story?
The more exposure your child has to questions and reading the more they will enjoy it!
