This resource is made up of three transportation themed circle time activities that practice graphing, counting, sorting, name recognition, print concepts, and safety (related to transportation). These activities are meant to do during circle/large group time but the sorting activity can be done during small group or independent use, the transportation signs can be used during gross motor play. There are print friendly versions of each.
Great to use for Transportation theme, or Things That Go theme.
Review the skills/standards below and decide which (or all) standards will be part of your instructional goal.

Here is an overview of each activity
Question of the Day
In this activity, ask your students a simple question related to transportation. They provide an answer by writing their name (or use a name card) under their chosen answer. The activity can be used to practice math, reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
What is Transportation? Vehicle Sorting Activity
This activity would be great in introducing a transportation themed week. There are posters with simple explanations and pictures explaining what transportation is. Next, you can pass out different types of vehicles, one to each student, and allow them to sort the vehicles by how they travel (air, water, or land). There are 24 vehicles, which should be enough for each student at circle time, but can be done in small group or independently.
Transportation Environmental Print Signs
These traffic signs will get students familiar with common traffic signs to help keep them safe when they walk, play, and travel.
Print, and discuss each one by asking the students what they think the signs mean and share their actual meaning.
Setup traffic signs in your gross motor area where the students can play pretend cars or Red Light, Green Light.
