It's time for me to share my ideas to those who love teaching children as much as I do. I hope the ideas I present to you will be inspiring and motivate you to improve the way in which you educate and help children grow.

Let's get started with the first:

This term in Kindergym we are covering the modes of transportation (trains, boats, airplanes, cars, buses trucks and traffic safety.

This week was great fun for all. Our theme was road transportation which included cars, buses, motorcycles and trucks.

I made roads for the children to follow simply by visiting my local discount store and purchasing black fabric VERY cheaply. Then cut it into 4m lengths by 1m wide. Finally my husband helped the painting process by making templates of rectangles  out of cardboard which we laid on top of the middle of the fabric and painted in white to make the lines on the road. Simple but ever so effective! Everyone loved them....including me.

I then gave each child a red fireman's hat, a rubber ring (as the steering wheel) and a fire hose.
We made the fire hoses from garden hose chopped into roughly 30cm lengths and got some blue feathers and glued them onto the ends to make it look like the water.
We then sang the song "Hurry hurry drive the fire truck". For those of you who are not familiar with this song, it is sung by Play School (Australia)...try itunes. We followed the roads in search of the fire, pretended to climb the ladder moving our hands and feet and squirted the water hose in the air and finally tickled the parents with our TICKLE HOSES!

I hope you enjoy these ideas. Please let me know.
