Transportation Fun! - Pre-K 9-3

Posted by [email protected] on April 28, 2022 at 4:10 PM

This week we are learning about transportation. We talked about different types of transportation: land, air, and water. We identified what they are and sorted them by land, air, and water. We practiced writing transportation words, traced ABC letters using toy cars, and practiced writing our first and last names. We did vehicle patterning, transportation memory match game, practiced writing numbers, and did simple subtraction. We built different types of transportation by using different manipulatives such as tinker toys, tubes, and magna-tiles. We did some matching games such as matching the worker with their vehicle and talking about what method transportation we use when coming to school. Most of the PreK 9-3 friends said they go in cars! We used toy vehicles to make car tracks and we made our own vehicle by drawing it and then we wrote what it is. I also showed the children pictures of different modes of transportation then and now and we discussed how they were same/different today. It's amazing how much it has changed throughout the years!

On Wednesday, we went on a field trip to see Doodle Pop and it was a interesting play and the PreK 9-3 children enjoyed it. The children were able to tell me things that they remember about the play and most of them said that the actors were looking for the turtle but found the turtle at the end of the play. The actors were interactive and they got the kids to participate with them. The actors came all the way from South Korea to do this play for the children.

We set the butterflies free on Thursday! It was so exciting to see them fly away after watching them grow from caterpillars to butterflies. Thank you to Ms. Holle for getting the caterpillars for us so that the children can see the Life Cycle of the Painted Lady Butterfly..

Have a great 3 day weekend! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me.
