stART- Shape Train

At our house Braeden is in LOVE with Thomas the Train.... pretty much as equally as Ryleigh was at his age with Winnie the Pooh.... anyway- we have a lovely collection of Thomas the Train stories in a hard cover book...I cannot find the picture online...and as Braeden is currently sleeping...there is no way I am going in his room to grab it to take a picture.... so you will have to take my word for it. It is about trains. Perfect for our "Tt" week.... For our project we made a train...out of shapes...because I like to multi-task learning.... :-)

Three Rectangles, One Square, Three Little Circles, One Big Circle,
One Triangle and the letter "t"....
Ryleigh gluing the start of the project...

As we did the project, I called out the shapes...much multitasking in this activity...if you will...listening and following directions, letters, art, shapes, colors....gluing... lots of fun!
The finished shape train...the "t" is the smoke stack...

Nice "placement" of the "t"! Very clever and love the look on concentration on her face. Perfect. Such a great way to learn your letters!
