Things That Go: {A Transportation Unit}

For the past three weeks we have been studying language arts and math around the theme: Things That Go.  We have been learning about all different types of transportation.  I made this unit to help our study.  Take a look...



Here is what is included and a sample picture of each goodie!
(some of the borders are cut off on the pictures...ignore that!) :/

 10 maps to describe the different vehicles-
helicopter
plane
rocket
boat
bus
fire truck
motorcycle

10 maps to plan a sentence about the different vehicles-

"What is your favorite type of transportation?"

 -cut and paste labeling sheets-
fire truck
car


 -compare and contrast sheets-
fire truck vs. police car

ABC order


 Parts of Speech Center-
students sort the words according to: verb, adjective, or noun


 Addition Center-
students look at the picture cards and write the sum on the recording sheet


 Beginning and Ending Sound Center-
students look at the transportation cards and record the beginning sound or ending sound of the word.  There are also two cut and paste worksheets for beginning and ending sounds





 Read and Write the Room and Sorting Center-
the same cards can be used as a read and write the room activity or for sorting them in different categories.  There are recording sheets, and cut and paste sheets to sort the vehicles by different categories




 Write What You See Activity
cut and paste writing center to write a sentence describing the order of the cars


  Transportation Emergent Reader

All of the centers are aligned to the Common Core Standards.
