Toddler stories: Jeepney Adventure

So as I mentioned in my previous blog, I’d be sharing the different toddler activities.  Today I’ll share Chesca’s jeepney ride.

As they were learning about land transportation, the school hired a jeepney so the kids can actually experience seeing and riding one.  They had so much fun!  I even told Chesca that if she wants to go somewhere, to just ride the jeepney with her yaya and not to ride the car anymore…And what do you know, she hurriedly said “YES, OKAY!”.  That’s how much she had fun in this activity.

Well, I’m not quite sure if they were taught to pay the driver and say “Mama, bayad” or “Para!”, that would’ve been cute! I should ask her if they did that.

Let me share with you pictures of the activity.

After this activity, she’d always shout “jeepney!” in an excited tone everytime she sees one on the road.  Well, at least I know that she absorbs what’s taught to her in school 🙂


So I asked Chesca if teacher taught them “para” and “ma, bayad” during their jeepney ride and she said “YES”.  To test her, I asked what “para” meant.  And she immediately said (in her excited tone) “to stop! …  then we also gave money to the manong driver”.  I asked her how much but she said “I don’t know, teacher just gave us money to give the driver”.

Indeed an activity worthwhile!
