Train Station Play- letter number recognition.
My kids love all things train to I came up with this idea to play train station.
I just used clip art to make the tickets and the conductor check in sheet.
Printed them and laminated them.
Each child had to buy a ticket (we used play money to help them learn coin value)
Once on the train the conductor went up to ever passenger to collect the tickets. Each child had to say the letter and number on their ticket then circle it on the conductor sheet with a dry erase marker.
The kids had so much fun with this we even got out a United states map and I had each child point to states and cities (more learning) that the train would head to, they all took turns choosing destinations.
When they were done playing train station they still had fun matching the tickets to the conductor sheet and crossing them off.
