Circle time was great. I introduced the unit " transportation" and the kids made a few guesses at what it meant. Gavin said " travel" and I was really proud of him. That isnt a common word for preschoolers to use ! We took our chart paper and I wrote land, air and water on it and as they brainstormed different ways we could " go places", we put them into a category.
Air - rockets, airplanes, helicopters, parachutes, gliders They said birds , like Diego, but I explained that really can only happen on TV. :)
Land - They said the obvious ones but were quite inventive as well. Some others were stroller, Honda,digger ...
Sea - Boats , submarines, turtles - wait ... that is another TV idea!
One funny thing was someone said umbrella and I said, " an umbrella can't take you places, can it? " Adam replied, " yes, it can if it is windy!" But, he is also the little one that told me his mom said Yellow on a stop light means go faster... Lacey?
It has been a good day. I think they will enjoy this week !
