Vehicle Frenzy

Is it a plane? A train? An automobile?
Does is travel by air, by land, or by sea?
What's the color? Size? Shape? Design?

Oh my, were we busy with vehicles and learning about transportation this past week! We covered a lot of ground in reading, writing, math, and social studies and the children really stepped up to the different challenges we gave them! Check out all of their awesome work below...

MATH
We reviewed sorting this week. We worked on sorting by one attribute and then moved to sorting by two attributes at the same time and explaining how they sorted their groups. Tough work, but they did great!

Sorting by color....

Sorting by color and type....

Sorting with cards....



READING and SOCIAL STUDIES 
We have been reading stories like Sheep in a Jeep, Duck in a Truck, Duck on a Bike, Red Racer, and more! We focused on events from the story and identifying whether they were true or false and fantasy or reality. We used our transportation leveled readers and played a variety of sight word review games also! The children also sorted how vehicles travel through a transportation book and vehicle classification organizer.

Vehicle Classification...

Cut and paste classification organizer....


WRITING
Wow! They blew us away!
We have been dictating, copying, and filling in sentence frames since September....then we moved to writing one complete sentence by November....most children now write two sentences in response to most stories we read. This week we changed it up and challenged them to write a story after a short mini-lesson. They did GREAT and we loved reading what these young authors had to say! 

Stories...


We also did a mini-lesson on expanding their routine "favorite part" writing to give multiple reasons for choosing their favorite vehicle. Again, WOW! We are so proud of our little authors! Some filled a page and went beyond...others filled a page who we might not have expected...and a few may have only written one sentence, but they, too, have grown leaps and bounds this year! 

Favorite vehicle...




SNACK TIME!

No big unit is complete without a special snack! This one was pretty easy...graham crackers, frosting, and
 M & M's to make a stoplight. They loved it!

Frosting...

Adding the lights...

The finished product!



The best part....





A few of these activities are already in our store and you can grab them here:




We *might* also be adding some more of it to our store very soon!

Our graphing lesson from the week before isn't pictured in this post, but it is available in our store if you're interested.

Don't forget our entire store is 20% off for the Spring Clean-Up Sale!
The sale runs through March 31st.



What's your favorite transportation-themed
classroom activity?
We'd love to hear about some fun to plan and save for next year!

We are "Down on the Farm" for the next couple of weeks now.
We hope you have a great week!

  4. I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  5. Excellent post, its amazing that its necessary really but it is. I think Iarfhlaith's point about bigger buttons attracting more comments is very true. I'm subtle that way.
