FREEBIE Friday! Blue Car, Blue Car, What do you See?

 A few weeks ago a brilliant follower  on my FB page  (you know who you are) commented on a story about my son and she gave me a great idea!  Why not make a transportation themed book that imitates a much loved children's book that is repetitive and rhythmic in nature?  At that moment, Blue Car, Blue Car What Do You See? was formulating in my mind.  

Over the last few weeks, I've been able to purchase these very cute graphics from ReviDevi @ mygrafico.com and make this book for my PK kiddos.


And of course you know the rules here at C-Station:  if I make, you get it!  So here it is! 


Note that this booklet is made so you can either print it front to back (and fold) OR single pages (and cut down center line and place in order).  My personal preference is single pages (so you can only see the preview picture, not the next page) but if you need to save trees, you can do so by printing front to back and just folding the book!  It's really up to you! :)





I LOVE this book because of all the language skills I can work on:



  • concepts of transportation
  • color concepts
  • transportation sorting (land, air, water, or construction vs. rescue, etc.)
  • answering "What" and "Where" questions (e.g. What does a plane do?  Where do you see a plane?) 
  • similarities and differences between various types of transportation
  • making predictions with visual cues

At the bottom of each page is a small picture preview of what object is on the next page.  I made this book an interactive book by printing 2 copies of pages 1 and 2 and using the extra set of pictures with velcro to "match up" with the preview pictures on each page!



Above you see the second set of pages 1 and 2 cut and ready for the child to match up while using his/her visual cues to "predict" what we are going to "see" next!


We match it up (I like to use velcro but you don't have to) and turn the page to see if our prediction was correct!


Check out all of the pages!!!  Want your own copy?  Grab it at the bottom of this blog!
