Orca Transportation!

 In the Orca room this month, the children have been busy exploring the theme of Transportation!!  Everything from trains, planes and automobiles.... all the way to ferry boats, city buses, bicycles and everything in between!
Driving over letters! 
 Fine motor skills, pre-writing (letter tracing) and pre-reading (letter recognition)

Airplane sensory bins!

Transportation memory game that turns into an airplane runway!


Lots of play with the car garage! 
Excellent opportunities to practice turn taking skills (negotiation/reasoning; impulse control).  The teachers have observed some wonderful co-operative play that involves imagination and maturing socialization.

Train cutting and colouring

Group play in the dramatic area. 
 We've transformed this area into a garage, complete with tires!

Vehicle wash station!
Stay tuned for more, as well as pictures from the Four-Year-Old field trip to the Translink Depot!
