Stories to go alongside the transporting schema -
- Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne - Handa fills her basket with fruits to take to her friend Akeyo. This is an amazing story for the children to join in with physically - baskets, real or play fruits, a bit of space to walk up and down...
- Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo and Alex Ayliffe - I love these books; rhyming text and repeated refrains to join in with. Perfect.
- Tip Tip Gig Dig by Emma Garcia - another favourite. I do this one with lots of props. And we tie it in with toy diggers in the tuff spot with some gravel or small duplo bricks for transporting.
- Beach from Usborne books - I like the idea of this to go along with talking about going to the beach, making sandcastles and collecting things like shells and pebbles in buckets.
- My Gumpy's Outing by John Burningham - everyone is transported down the river on Mr Gumpy's boat.
