Construction Theme Activity Binder


Construction Theme Busy Binder

I am pretty sure that every child I have ever known, especially little boys,  has had some obsession with construction equipment and construction themed things at some point in their life. My little guy has been obsessed since he was wee little. The construction theme is such a fun one and I couldn't miss the opportunity to create a construction themed activity binder! My little guy was on cloud nine when I pulled these activities out for him the first time. This is just one of many themed binder sets that I have available with many more to come. I have a hard time picking a favorite because each set is just so incredibly fun to make.

Are you looking for simple hands on learning activities to keep your young learners engaged and learning while playing? Do you have a little one who is obsessed with Construction equipment?  This Construction Themed Activity Binder for preschool and kindergarten has ten interactive learning activities that are perfect for any time of year and will keep your learner engaged and having fun while learning. Check out all ten construction themed learning activities and grab a copy for your home or classroom here.

Busy Binder Facts

The Construction Themed Busy Binder can be used any time of the year. The activities in the set are engaging and interactive and practice many early learning skills.   You can use my activity binders in many different ways. You can use them as morning work in the home or early childhood classroom, take it along with you when you travel or go to a restaurant or doctors appointment, or use it as part of your homeschool, preschool, or kindergarten classroom curriculum.

The Construction Themed Busy Binder set includes 10 activities for preschool and kindergarten and covers the following skills:
  • Visual Discrimination
  • Letter Recognition and Beginning Sounds
  • Numbers, Counting & Ten Frames
  • Shape Tracing
  • Colors and Color Words 
  • Numbers & Counting
  • Tally Marks and Graphing
  • Short Vowels
  • Prewriting/Tracing Practice & Matching
  • Pen Control/Left to Right Progression
The activities in this busy binder are great for binder work or using as individual activities. Many parents and teachers have used them alongside sensory bins and I absolutely love that idea. These are so easy to use in a variety of ways.

Busy Binder Activities

Here is a look at everything included in the Construction Themed Activity Binder.

If you decide to bind them together into a binder or book, I have included a cover page you can use! I have used both binders and Proclick binding spines to bind our busy binders over the years. Both work great. And again, you don't even have to bind them or use Velcro dots. You can use them as individual activities.

Using tally marks is an easy way to see how many you have of something. With this Tally & Graph Construction activity, children will use tally marks to count how many different construction related pictures there are and they will use the information they collected to graph the totals on the graph.

Construction Words Trace and Match is a two part activity. Children will be introduced to construction themed vocabulary words. They will trace the words and spell them out and then once they have traced the words, they will match them to the correct picture on the left side of the mat.
