In small group, we did a following directions with numbers activity that I found here. This activity pack is filled with great construction themed activities for PreK and kindergarten students.
Here is the activity that we did:
I had each student take a turn choosing a number from the pile. The student then had to put that number of "rocks" in the dump truck. You could also throw in some prepositions by having the child put 3 rocks under the truck, in front of the truck, behind the truck, etc.
There are a ton of other great activities in this construction themed packet. Below are some screen shots of a few of the other activities included.
This is a matching game that teaches construction vocabulary.
You can also use this for teaching same/ different concept.
This is a page from en emergent reader color book. Great for vocabulary and following directions!
Each year I have found it hard to find books and units that fit the construction week theme. I will definitely be using this in the years to come!
