Transportation Storytime

Cars, Trucks, Bikes, Automobiles, Planes, oh my! Things that go! Transportation Storytime! There are a TON of related books and songs/fingerplays for this week but I found it difficult to find a craft (and I SCOURED pinterest!). All in all though, everything turned out great!

Picture Books:

Who is Driving
Who is Driving by Leo Timmers
Red Truck
Red Truck by Kersten Hamilton, Illus. by Valeria Petrone
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus
by Mo Willems (always a favorite!)
Smash! Crash!
Smash! Crash!
by Jon Scieszka (another favorite!)

I really wanted to find a cute picture book about bicycles but I couldn’t find one that either wasn’t outdated or had nice pictures… Would love any recommendations!

Songs and Extension Activities:

Go, Slow, Stop
(don’t know the source sorry!!)
Green says go!
Go! Go! Go!
Yellow says slow.
Slow. Slow. Slow.
And red says stop!
Go, go, go!
Slow, slow, slow.
And stop!

Go Slow Stop

The Wheels on the Bus

I’m not going to type out the words because we all probably already know it :)

Lots of Cars
source
There are lots of cars driving down the street (pretend to have a steering wheel)
Tell me what color do you see? (place color car on felt board)
Big cars, little cars (spread arms big and little)
Beep! Beep! Beep!
There are lots of cars driving down the street!

I will have the pictures and more info for this in a flannel friday post later today or this week :)

  1. Hi Meg,
    I like the book, Duck On A Bike by David Shannon!

  2. I was searching for some good traffic books myself.
    The ones I like are:
    Traffic Pups by Michele Meadows
    Sakes Alive! A Cattle Drive by Karma Wilson
    Gus, the Dinosaur Bus by Julia Liu

  3. Thank you for the wonderful ideas! I will be using the flannel board for my toddler story time. I appreciate your taking the time to post, it is so very helpful.

  4. Byron Barton has a new book “MY BIKE” that sounds exactly like what you are looking for :)

  5. I love the Lots of Cars fingerplay! So adorable! I can’t wait to use it next week, thanks so much!
