Transportation Pocket Chart Stories

Get your students reading with these fun transportation pocket charts stories.

Pocket chart stories are a wonderful way to get your students actively involved in the story telling process.  When using pocket chart stories it helps to bring the stories alive and capture the attention of the students.  Students are able to participate in a hands-on way as children are able to move the text around to create different versions of the same story.

Clutter-Free Classroom Project Week 4

This week we were suppose to concentrate on our Teacher Desk area but I choose to do my group meeting area since it is the hub of my classroom.

Before Picture
All of my CD’s were on top of my stereo area even though you can not see it in this picture and all of the under cabinets had teacher stuff in them from previous teachers that I have never gone through since being back in the classroom.  So this area was a big one for me because I would keep all of my stuff on top of cabinets and were every I could place them.  (This was not working I could never find what I need in a hurry)

After Pictures

 Everything is now organized and in the cabinet below or in the TV cabinet picture to follow.

The side doors were full of cassette tapes (I know who uses those now days, but that is what was in there)  I had to remove black strips so that the CD case would fit in there.  Once I had all of my CD’s organized by artist I labels each section so that I can find what I am looking for in a snap.
In the middle of my cabinet I now have my transition games, storytelling kits, dancing ribbons, mini maracas and rhythm sticks.

The closed door TV cabinet that sits next to my stereo cabinet now houses VHS tapes, Pom Poms, transition dice, dancing scarves, dramatic props for retelling stories and sacks for sack races.

In the Air

We are getting ready to start our unit on transportation and community helpers.  I was going through some pictures and came across my pictures from last year that I wanted to share with you since I was in the planning mood. 

During our creative art workstation for in the air the children came up with these amazing air transportation creations.


 Hot Air Balloon


 In the writing center children found cloud cut outs with transportation words that they could write on their own and this is what they did.  I turned the writing clouds into the boarder for our transportation bulletin board.  (Will be posted at a later date)

Say It, Count It, Write airplane passengers
 Let each child pick out which airplane mat they would like to use. Have the children roll a number dice. Have them identify the number on the dice. (say it) Once they have identified the number have them count out the passengers. (count it) After the children have counted out the right amount of passengers have them write the number on the math mat with a dry eraser marker. (write it)

 This 125 page lesson is filled with ideas that are sure to spark the interest of all children in your classroom. This lesson covers all learning domains for preschool children. Including: Story Extension, Math Games, Science Activities, Creative Art Project, Language and Literacy Activities and Movement Ideas.
