We have been having a wonderful time in Room 3 studying transportation with an emphasis on trains. From reading books about trains, playing with Thomas and other train toys, to watching train clips on YouTube, we have been learning so much. As has become our tradition in Room 3, we added to our train knowledge and experiences by taking a ride on the Gold Line. It was a fantastic trip that included our local Sierra Madre Train Station, the beautiful Los Angeles Union Station, and culminated with a stop at Olivera Street, and the oldest house in LA. The kids were enthralled by the entire trip from the first ticket purchase to the last sound of the train’s warning bells on the station platform. We want to acknowledge and give a special thank you to all the parents who came along and made this trip possible, we couldn’t have done it without you.
To the Train!
