From Here to There...Transportation Fun

This week we learned all about transportation!  All of our center activities and theme activities were based on different types of transportation.   We learned about sailboats, cruise ships, cars, big rigs, planes, helicopters, trains, submarines and many more types of transportation this week!  Check out my and Mrs Holcomb's (Kindergarten Khronicles) Transportation Theme Unit on TPT! You will receive instructions, pictures, and materials on how to make all the cute forms of transportation you will see in this blog post!
During Center time, we had so much fun!  We even got to drive real toy cars around for a few of our centers!  Check out all the fun we had...

I have NO clue how to flip a sorry about the crookedness!
They had to set the timer for 10 seconds and see how many cars they could get to the stop sign.  The next picture is the recording sheet for this fun activity.  I am pretty sure we didn't always use the timer correctly..we're still learning. :)


Working on handwriting.  They had to drive around town and write the words they saw.  Then they had to write a sentence about it.

Writing transportation sticker stories.

The next few pictures are of our class creating the background for our transportation mural.  I forgot to take a picture of the final product! :(  The kidrocks drew and colored different types of transportation and put them in the correct spot.   It turned out so cute!  I will try to post a picture soon!

The next few pictures are from our PTO program.... thanks to all of you that came out and supported us!
