Train Tot Pack (*free*)

You’re probably focused on Christmas-y ideas and activities this month.  I know that’s been on my brain for the past few days!  This tot pack has been in the works for a while, and there hasn’t been a ton of extra time for creating.  I’d hoped to be working on a Christmas pack by now, but didn’t want to put this promised pack on hold…
My boys ADORE trains!  Often, as soon as they hop out of bed in the morning, they are playing at their train table.  One boy or the other usually has a Thomas train in his hand.  They BEG to watch Chuggington on TV!  (They have a Chuggington book, and I didn’t even realize it was a TV show until my neighbor clued me in…we don’t usually watch anything other than PBS!)  The number one item on their Christmas lists is more trains!
Alex was super excited to wake up from his nap one day and find me creating train-themed printables.  He grinned and said, “Are these for me?  For Tot School?”  He was thrilled, and I hope your little engineers will love these pages, too!
I try not to include the exact same pages in every pack, just to keep things creative.  There are some new activities like an alphabet mini book with cutting, matching, gluing, and tracing.  I’d love some feedback on the new count & match/add & match cards.  (I’m hoping these will work in a pocket chart, but I have to admit that we haven’t printed them yet!)  If you’re disappointed to find your child’s favorite activity is missing, let me know…I’ll be glad to create something for you!

I started a Pinterest train pinboard, but haven’t had much time to fill it yet.  If you’re saving this pack for later, you can always check back for new additions to the board! :)

Just downloaded it and LOVE it,
I did find a typo, on pg 29, it says tree and stump, not train and track. Just wanted you to know...

Thanks Dawn for linking up the Nativity Pre-K Pack! I'm so glad you liked it!

My Nathan is going to love the Train Tot Pack. The only negative I see, is that you have to create a login to download the file.

Thanks again!
