Brightly Beaming Resources: Week #10 Trains

"All aboard!"  The Shrade Train

We've been having fun with trains this week since that is Shrade's #1 love right now. Daddy even took him downtown to see the trains as well as we have a train track right next to our house.  The other weekend they had a steam train come through!  We've also been having our "lessons" up in the new room!  I like a change of scenery besides the living room.

Don't know why it's turned this way- Steam Train from tracks next to our house.

Tot Books & Packs

Thomas the Train Lapbook: from 1+1+1=1 (We don't have a color printer, but it still works!)

I got this printout from Lightning Bug Literacy.  We put little rocks on all the circles.  Great fine motor and brain activity for 1 to 1 correspondence.

This lapbook has matching shape cards, numbers, 1-1 correspondence (colored train circles), book, letter recognition (TRAIN) with matching.

Books we read:
I Love TrainsThe Little TrainThe Little Engine That Could miniFreight Train Trip!: A Lift-the-Flap Adventure
*Also a book called Let's Go that had two stories: Hello Freight Train and Little Red Caboose

Buzz BuzzThis CD has a song called "Little Red Caboose"

We also used the lesson from Totally Tots (Once Upon a Book) about The Little Engine That Could.
With this lesson we had fun using a flannel board story from Rising Moon Adventures.

For letter J I decided to start a craft with Letter of the Week at No Time for Flashcards.  I recently purchased the Alphabets Craft Ebook where I found this Jellyfish project.
