Transportation Week

Playing a little bit of catch-up today....Ella was at Vacation Bible School last week, but the week before that, we had transportation week!

Books we read:

Educational things:

I also took a few of the transportation pictures from the link above and blew them up. Then I used number cards I had from teaching (you could easily make some with index cards!) and made up a little counting game. Ella chose a number card from the pile, and then put that number of stones on the plane/train/car/submarine. 

We used these tools again! She is getting good!

Art projects:


"Traffic lights" using graham crackers, peanut butter and red, yellow and green M&Ms!

Sensory play:

Car wash using shaving cream!

We also took a few "field trips:"

First, to the airport overlook to watch the airplanes land and take off!

And the next day, we took the light rail uptown with our friends to story time at ImaginOn!

Perhaps most ironically of all, during transportation week, my car stopped working. No really, it completely STOPPED on Elm Lane while I was delivering food to my friend who just had a baby! (Luckily, after I restarted it--in the middle of the road--it worked again so I was able to take her dinner and make it back home!) So we also took a few field trips to various car places.

Luckily, they figured out it had to do with some recall/extended warranty thing so I was able to get it fixed for free. Just funny that it happened this week of all weeks!!
