Preschool Corner: Letter T-Transportation

Welcome to letter T week.  Our theme this week was Transportation.

{David is 3 years, 11 months old}

We had a hodge podge of resources this week.  Most of our transportation printables came from Homeschool Creations.  Our turtle activities came from Confessions of a Homeschooler's LOTW curriculum and Homeschool Creations' Pond Life preschool pack.  We also did the Thomas the Train tot book from 1+1+1=1.

Working on our tot book.  I hope to hand these down to little brother next year!

Pre-writing and handwriting activities from transportation pack.

Size sequencing.

Shadow matching.

Spelling transportation words.

3-part word cards.

Counting planes, trains and automobiles.

Uppercase/lowercase letter sort.

Turtle size sorting and color matching.

Turtle patterning.

Turtle puzzle.

I made a sheet for him to practice writing David (as opposed to the DAVID he writes now).  I love how he is sniffing the dry-erase marking.  I can almost guarantee you that it ended up on his nose!

Our super-short Bible verse this week (from RRSK).  "Thou shall not steal." Exodus 20:15.

We played this fun Racing Racecars game from Mama Jenn.  I found it was much easier for him to roll the dice if I gave him a small container.  Otherwise, I was chasing the dice all over the kitchen.

We only made one craft this week, but it was a good one!  A toilet paper tube train.

Painting is finished.  Time to connect the train.

Finished product.

Number sequencing train.

Some coloring and playdough, letter T words for alphabet book and playdough.

Finally, time for a snack.  We've made these before.  I got the idea here.

Dump Truck Brownies.  (We added spring sprinkles this time.)

Adding sprinkles.  I think David ate most of his.

Our finished project board.

Some of our favorite transportation books:

The Little Dumptruck by Margaret Cuyler
Freight Train by Donald Crews
Clickety Clack by Rob & Amy Spence
Two Little Trains by Margaret Wise Brown
Puff Puff, Chugga Chugga by Christopher Wormell

Little Blue Truck, one of Samuel's favorites! It's a sweet story about being a good friend and doing the right thing.
