With the recent eclipse, it has sparked a love of all thing space for my kids and my daughter asked me to teach her about space. I told her I’d get something ready for when school starts and she wanted it tomorrow.
We’ll go through all of the planets in the solar system along with the sun, moon and stars and I can increase the difficulty for my son so I can work with them together.
Space Writing Worksheets
- Upper and lowercase letter practice
- Rocket, Shuttle and Astronaut
Print the worksheets out onto paper and have your child practice their space theme writing. If you’d like to reuse them, I like the Crayola Dry Erase Center, and I place my daughter’s worksheets in there and she uses a dry erase marker to write on it.
I have my daughter practice forming the letter correctly with her finger in the air first because I want her to focus not only on writing the letter but using the correct strokes that will make writing easier for her.
I never just hand her the worksheets, but I do watch over to make sure she’s following the arrows since she likes to have fun with me and do it the opposite way, argh!
To extend the activity, use my other space counting cards, pair it with some wonderful space books from the library, try to create your own rocket or watch a cool space documentary.
