Trucks for Storytime!

After seeing all those construction and emergency vehicles Tuesday night, we followed up with a storytime session about trucks on Thursday. We read I'm a Truck Driver by Jonathan London that showed a boy or a girl driving lots of different kinds of trucks and heavy equipment. We also noticed the cat or dog on each page! Where is my T-R-U-C-K? by Karen Beaumont was a funny story about a boy who lost his favorite toy truck. Wait until you see where he found it! Finally, we read Miss Cathy's favorite - Trashy Town by Andrea Zimmerman, about Mr. Gilly, who collects trash. Here's a link to a video of the story if you want to hear it yourself! Don't forget to join in when you hear “Dump it in, smash it down, drive around the Trashy Town!”

We used foam pieces and cnstruction paper rectangles, scrap circles and other small objects to make a truck, and some made a ribbon road for it to travel on. Some used the materials to make a different kind of vehicle. During the crafting, there was lots of excited talk about all different styles of trucks and heavy equipment!
