This book of activities and lessons is designed to provide you, as a teacher or parent, with reading and writing activities that motivate your child or students to learn. When we build children’s interests into our lessons and learning activities, children are more naturally motivated to complete the work.
This book is written for children who have an understanding of letters and which sounds they make and that have a special interest in trains. In my years of teaching special education, many of my students (particularly those with autism) have been very interested in trains. Using train-themed learning activities has been highly motivating for my students, helping them focus on their work with less struggle and distraction and more fun and enjoyment. The illustrations are designed to be simple, so as to provide a visual cue without distracting the student.
