1-2-3 Come Park It With Me!

If you do a unit on transportation, you'll definitely want to include "Park It!" in your lessons.

The original idea for the parking lot, came from a home-schooling mom over at "I can teach my child", who made one out of tape for her sons.  Click on the link to check out her wonderful site.

CCSS for kindergarten math, free common core lessons for kindergarten, free common core lessons for 1st grade, free common core, math games, math centers, transportation unit ideas, transportation theme lessons, upper and lowercase matching, car games, 1 to 1 correspondence activities, parking lot grip, parking lot template, activities for elementary school boys, I wanted to make this easier, and something you could put away, so I designed the template. I used traceable letters so children could also practice writing with dry erase markers. They can trace the top letter, park their car, and then write the letter(s) under their vehicle.

The Dollar Store sells small cars 6 in a pack.  You can also pick them up at garage sales any where from a dime to 25 cents.

Instead of tape, I used tough-stick colored dots.  Don't get garage sale ones, because they will peel off easily. For an even more professional look, watch for all of those 40% off coupons from Hobby Lobby, JoAnne Fabrics & Michaels, to buy stickers that already have the letters written on them!

Here's How To Make Your Letter Matching Parking Lot:

  • Print off on card stock or construction paper in your choice of color. Laminate & trim.  
  • You could tape all of the parking lot cards together for one big long parking lot, or keep them separate, so several children can play with them.  
  • This hands-on game will be so popular, you’ll want to make several sets.  
  • Another thing you can do, is put all of the cars in a container and let each child pick one.  When you call out a letter, that child with the matching car, comes up and parks it.  
  • Have an upper and lowercase set of cars so students can match 1-1, upper to lowercase and lower to uppercase.

1-2-3 Come Practice Writing Letters With Me!

Just because a child can write a letter, does not mean they are forming it in the correct way.

follow the arrows letter formation practice sheets, homework for kindergarten, letter assessments, letter formation assessments, forming letters practice sheets, alphabet activities, letter activities, ideas for the 1st day of school, ideas for the first week of school, table top lessons for kinder and preschool kids, alphabet lessons, writing lessons, I was extremely excited to purchase a font that shows arrows, that students can follow, as they trace letters. By using these practice sheets everyday, for the first few weeks of school, you will help your students learn correct letter formation in a quick, easy and fun way.

Allow them to choose a different color highlighter or crayon each day, or for each line. These sheets work well for a simple Daily 5 activity too.

I've also designed a page you can send home to parents, so they can help a struggling child, or reinforce the lessons practiced in school. Many districts require homework for kinders and this is an effective thing to send home that parents can easily do.
