How many times have I said that summer is my busiest time at work? Well it is! So sometimes I have to let the themes come to me. With half our town under construction, any homeschool outings would be simple, so how about a week of 18 Construction Preschool Trays!?

- Constructive Eating
- Construction Books
- Tegu & Magnetic Building

- Memory Game
- Construction Dot to Dot
- Construction Stickers Scene
- What Would Be…
- Wheels Drawing Prompt
- The wood here is from this neat set of Building Boards”>. I combined this with some old pieces of chipboard and the encouragement to build something!
- E may not have used the Constructive Eating set much when he was young, but he likes it for playing now!
- We put some dried peas, corn and pasta and silicone muffin cups so he could set up his own jobs.
- We put two books out for him to practice reading as well as drawing: Dazzling Diggers and another book from the dollar bin at Jo-Ann!
- Here is another open-ended building activity!
- This includes Tegu magnetic blocks, hex nuts and washers!
- This fun worksheet can be found in the Scholastic Success with Kindergarten Workbook!
- This worksheet is also from the Scholastic Success with Kindergarten Workbook.
- Here we decided to combine a regular construction staple, a level, with a kids toy (the Fisher-Price Wheelies Construction Carrier!)
- This cool and big Construction Word Search is from Education.com!
- This is simply a cheap apron from Lowes, and some fabric markers to dress it up!
- I always like it when I can put his Smartmax magnetic building set out with his school!
- It’s one of those toys where you can really witness their growth.
- Just as the title of this activity says, this is just a bunch of http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001T52V98/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001T52V98&linkCode=as2&tag=smarteparte-20&linkId=EXIB7BYSLFAQKYYX”>random Legos!
- He hadn’t seen his Battat Take-A-Part Airplane in awhile so this week of school was a perfect one for bringing it out!
- I just loved the look of this Construction Truck Matching Game available on Teachers Pay Teachers!
- I trimmed them down to fit in a tray but gave him scissors to cut out the individual pieces.
- This Construction Dot to Dot worksheet is also from Education.com!
- To my surprise, I was able to find the same laser construction stickers that we have online! I have to wonder how long I’ve had these.
- I thought it would be fun to make a scene with these on some black paper.
- It’s a no-brainer that we would use the construction scene from the Melissa & Doug Reusable Vehicles Sticker Pad in this week of school!
This is a page from a very random coloring book from the dollar store!
- I made this one. He’s been liking drawing prompts lately so I just put some clipart wheels on the page to see what he would make!
I also downloaded Constructing Preschool Fun but didn’t use it this time around.
Construction was a good, well-rounded theme! We utilized so many ideas from past weeks of school like Simple Machines and Tools. I hope this helps you “construct” a good week of preschool!
