Transportation Preschool Centres

The Transportation Preschool Centres packet contains a collection of printable activities for use with children in Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten (Prep).

Contents and Direction for use

To prepare all the activities for use, print, then laminate the pages for durability and then cut out all the pieces.

1. Transportation write and wipe pre-writing tracing practice (9 cards)

Pre-writing cards give children the opportunity to practice making different types of lines in isolation. Using a white board (dry-erase) marker, children are required to trace the path on the page.

2. Transportation upper case tracing practice and car play mat

Kids and toy cards just GO together! In the first section children use their fingers or a dry-erase (whiteboard) marker to trace the letters, following the directional arrows to ensure correct letter formation is learnt. Next using one of the printed cars or a small toy car trace the road letters allowing children to have fun but whilst learning their letters.

3. Car and parking lot upper and lower case letter match

This is a fun and engaging way to help children learn to match the lower case letters on the car to the correct upper case letter in the parking lot.

4. Hot air balloon beginning sounds match

Learning the beginning sounds letters make is one of the early keys to a solid phonological awareness (the awareness of sounds within words). The aim of this activity is for children to match the animals (beginning sound pictures) to the correct hot air balloon.

5. Transportation syllables: 1,2,3 syllable words (18 cards)

Did you know that the ability to break words into syllables is an important part of phonological awareness? The aim of this activity is for children to identify the number of syllables for each pictures and show their answer by clipping a peg on the corresponding number on the card. Once printed and laminated, provide children with some small clothes pegs.

6. Bus CVC word and picture match (15 cards)

This activity is great for practicing how all the learnt letter sounds translates into sounding out words. The aim of this activity is for children to match the correct picture to the CVC words on the bus.

7. Sailboat rhyming words match (12 cards)

Rhyming is a very important skill to learn prior to teaching children to read. The ability to identify rhyming words will make it much easier for children to notice patterns in similar words. The aim of this activity is for children to match the sail to the boat with which it rhymes.

8. Sight Word Train (44 words)

Learning sight words not only help children read more fluently but also helps them write more efficiently too. The aim of this activity is for children to identify sight words on the train and then build the sight word. You could use the letter tiles included in this packet or your own letter tiles or beads.

9. Delivery van and contents color match (R,O,Y,G,B,P,P, Black, Brown, Gray)

The aim of this activity is for children to sort the different colored items to the correct delivery van.

10. Transportation shadow matching (16 cards)

Shadow matching helps children improve observation, memory and visual discrimination skills. This activity allows children to work on those skills by matching the transportation vehicle to their shadow.

11. Which picture is different? transportation cards (4 cards)

The aim of this activity is for children to clip a peg on the picture that is different.

12. What doesn’t belong? camping cards (4 cards)

The aim of this activity is for children to clip a peg on the picture that doesn’t belong.

13. Transportation sorting: air, sea and land transport

This hands-on activity is a fun way to help your children classify vehicles by determining whether they travel on land, in air, or on water. These cute and colorful cards can be used as a whole class “circle time” activity or in small group instruction. They can also be put in a center for the children to work on individually.

14. Transportation patterns (AB)

The aim of this activity is for children to identify the pattern on the cards and to clip the correct picture in the empty box to complete the pattern. You could also attach the picture cut outs to the end of a clothes peg using a hot glue gun to add some fine motor development to the activity!

15. Hot air balloon 4-part sequencing cards

The aim of this activity is for children to order the cards correctly to show the hot air balloon process from inflation to flying through the air.

16. Transportation number tracing practice and car play mat (0-10)

Please note: You will need to supply toy cars for this activity. Children practice finger tracing the number at the top of the page and then, using a car, they play on the road number.

17. Transportation car and parking lot counting (0-10)

The aim of this activity is for children to randomly park some cars in the parking lot. They then count them and find the correct number sign and place it in the empty circle.

18. Train number sense (1-10)

The aim of this activity is for children to sort the different number representations train wagons to the correct train engine.

19. Car transporter truck sorting by size (small, medium, large)

Sorting by size helps children strengthen their visual distinguishing skills. The aim of this activity is for children to sort the different cars to the correct car transporter truck.

20. Delivery van shape sorting

This hands-on activity is a fun way to help children recognize and sort shapes. The aim of this activity is for children to sort the different shaped items to the correct delivery van. This is a great activity that can be used as a whole class “circle time” activity or in small group instruction for children who need extra practice with their shapes. They can also be put in a center for the children to work on individually.
