Transportation Felt Board Activities

Transportation is a great theme for any early childhood setting. Visit my website for more information to add to this preschool topic.

Matching Color Activity
Sung to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Cars are sleeping in their homes
Tired from the busy day
To the shops, and to the school
To the park, and to the pool
Cars are sleeping in their homes
Tired from a busy day

Number Recognition Activity

See the trains chugging chugging down the track
Engine in the front, caboose in the back
All the colors streaming past
This train’s going very fast
