My May vehicle unit was kind of a bust.
It worked out great for my self-contained students, their low-tech AAC, and our daily Bingo games… I was also able to use some basic category file folders for air/land/sea vehicles.
However, it turns out there aren’t any decent vehicle books beyond the preschool level (if there are, please give me titles!). And that is really a bummer when I have students up to age 11.
My favorite books used were:
If I Built a Car (my kids loved this at home too)
The Big Road Race (see my post on how to use this book here)
After the unit was over, I found a few books at the library that I might want to try out next year:
Toot Toot Zoom
Also I had, but never used, Good Driving Amelia Bedelia. Had I read this to the students, I’m sure I would have found some good language activities with my older students.
Suggestions? What vehicle books do you (or your kids) love?
