PRESCHOOL TRANSPORTATION THEME
Prepping your Transportation Week lesson plans and centers is going to be a breeze with this amazing collection of activities. Pick from trains, cars, planes, boats, and more to play and learn this week in your classroom.
Transportation Theme Math Activities
Using themes in preschool is more than just cute. It’s a way to keep kids engaged and interested using holidays, toys, and ideas they are already interested in to capture attention. These cute preschool transportation math centers focus on building skills, using play, and lots of fun fine motor work.
Train Pocket Counting
Have children work their fine motor skills along with their counting and subitizing skills in this fun fill the train car activity.
You can tape the cars to a wall and have kids fill them there or glue a sheet of paper on the back to create the pocket.
Transportation 10 Frames
Preschool kids will practice number formation as well as 10 frame work in this fun activity.
Drive the number for pre-writing numeral practice and then fill the correct number of squares on your frame.
Count and Build Trains
As kids, we would always count the train cars on passing trains. Here the kids can actually count to build their own train.
Transportation Song – Wheels on the Bus Count and Spin
Sing the song and count how many times the wheel needs to spin each time. This is a great activity for circle time in your preschool classroom.
Transportation Shapes – Roads
Turn jumbo craft sticks into build-your-own-road blocks. This activity is awesome for the block center and is also an amazing math activity.
Space Shuttle Subitizing
See if children can identify the number of dots without having to even count. This subitizing activity is a great way to practice number sense.
Transportation Theme Literacy Activities
Literacy is critical at this age because we are getting kids ready to learn to ready. These fun, hands-on activities help preschoolers practice their letters.
Alphabet Road Match
Drive and dump toy letters on their matching spot on the alphabet road. Play it on the ground or on a table. This activity is an absolute favorite for our preschoolers.
Police Car Alphabet Puzzles
These police car puzzles would be fun in a sensory bin of black beans and small strips of yellow pipe cleaner. Kids can make “roads” in the bin and then match the puzzle pieces.
Transportation Bingo Game
Can you find all the matching letters? See who can find and cover theirs first.
If you laminate the windows for this activity it could be great in a water table. Or fill a sensory bin with blue rice or pom poms for your water and then hide the alphabet windows in the bin.
Other Preschool Transportation Theme Activities
We definitely don’t want to miss sorting and patterns when teaching a classroom of young preschoolers. Here are a few more transportation theme printables you can use in your classroom centers or small groups.
Sink or Float Science
This activity is PERFECT for the science center. Laminate the boat and then see how many blocks you can stack on it before it sinks. Record what you find.
Race Car Math
Not all of us get a chance to drive a race car but kids can pretend in this fun math activity. Roll a dice and then drive a car around the track to cover the matching number.
Transportation Sorting Activity
Sorting is such an important concept that kids will use later in science and other parts of academics. Here they sort whether transportation vehicles go in land, air, or sea.
Air Balloon Patterns
Have your kids try to put together their own hot air balloon using the color blocks included. Does their pattern match?
Color Sorting Activities
This activity is perfect for a busy binder but it’s also a lot of fun as a preschool center. Have kids match the cars to their color words.
*Tip, use a marker to color a little dot next to the color word for those kiddos that don’t recognize the words yet.
Pretend to fly your planes into the matching letter clouds to make sure they get to the right place. You can hide the planes in a sky-themed sensory bin of white pom poms and blue rice if you would like.
