This last week we did so many fun Learning Activities with Experience Early Learning Curriculum 
I am so thankful for the opportunity to use  Experience Early Learning Curriculum with my students and to share our experiences on my blog. 
In exchange for my unbiased and honest reviews Experience Early Learning has provided me with the curriculum free of charge.
I have used Experience Early Learning Curriculum in my Classroom since 2017..


During our first week of Ocean Dive we learned about Parts of the Ocean.
We learned about Ocean Water, the Ocean Floor, Oeean Caves, Ocean Plants and Coral Reefs.

Five Oceans

The children learned that there are Five Oceans and during circle time we found them on the map. I also have the word cards out for them to see over in the Science/Sensory Center.





Ocean Plants
We learned about Ocean plants and Ocean starts with an Oo so we decorated it with green strips like an Ocean Plant.





 
On the Ocean Floor 

Oyster Pearls


The children created their own oysters by folding the paper plates in half and decorating them on both sides.Then adding a bead or beads on pipe cleaner.


My Little Journal

Writing and Drawing 
The children wanted to draw their favorite sea animal on the front of their journals.Most of the children wanted to draw a shark! Sharks are their favorite!



On the inside of the journal the children did tracing and additional activities.

What they do not finish at school, they enjoy doing at home with a family member.

Coral Reef Creations 

The children especially loved doing this activity. They created some amazing Coral Reefs. They had so much fun doing it!

They used several different materials such as play dough, pipe cleaner, packing peanuts, cut up straws and beads.



We had a great week of Ocean Dive in Pre-K Four.

The week before Easter the children were 
so excited to enter the classroom and to see ‘Bunnies Had Invaded Space’. 😄 🐰 
This past month we have been learning about Space and Sky.
They found Bunnies and Eggs in the Space Center.


They enjoyed collecting eggs in Space.



They also enjoyed playing pin the tail on the bunny.

Pin the tail on the bunny is included in the Experience Easter Packet available from Experience Early Learning website.



The children also enjoyed Bunnies in Block Center.



For CircleTime we had fun with a cute Bunny Poem from the Experience Easter Packet.



Five Little Bunnies 🐰 

Another Fun Learning Center 
Library Center- Bunnies in Space 






Easter Math Game - Cards are included in the Experience Easter KIt


I wrote numbers on the cards and the children used Easter theme erasers to count and complete the game.


Another fun way to use these cards is in the Writing Center.  The children could come to the writing center 
and write Easter words. They could also write invitations.
I wrote Easter words on the cards for the children to trace or write.

Astronaut Fitness 
I asked the children where they would travel if they were a astronaut. Some said to the moon, some said to earth 😊 and one child said Mars.
Then we discussed astronauts getting exercise and how important it is so that they can keep their bodies strong.

The children thought our next activity was hilarious and couldn’t quit laughing!

Exercising like an Astronaut. 👩‍🚀 

They took turns tossing the exercise cube and it would land on jumping jacks, stand on your head and more.



Now they want to do it every day during circle time. 



They loved 🥰 this activity! 


Was so much fun!


Astronaut Puppet
For creative art the children made the cutest Astronaut Puppet. 
They really liked looking through the clear cellophane part of the helmet and they looked so cute. The children said astronauts wear helmets so they can breathe.
They enjoyed coloring and putting their puppets together. 
After making their puppets they played together with them pretending to go to different planets.








 


Astronaut Voting 



The children took a vote with Astronaut Voting. They voted to fly to the moon in a hot air balloon instead of an rocket ship.

They voted to fly around Earth instead of the Sun.

They would rather build a Rocket Ship than a Hot Air Balloon.

See more Astronaut Voting Below!



Shiny Letter Zz
This week the children made shiny Letter Z with foil pieces.
The children wrote Uppercase and Lowercase Z
They made the Letter Z Sound 
They said words that start with the letter z












It was a great week in Pre-K. The children loved learning about Astronauts!

Experience Early Learning - Space & Sky

Exploring at the Space Station 
This month the children have thoroughly enjoyed the Space  Learning Centers in our classroom.
The children had an Awesome time pretending to take off in a Rocket Ship .
They were very excited to collect  Moon Rocks for observation.


Making Constellation Designs

The children have enjoyed building their own constellations.
They arranged and matched stars on the design mat to create constellations in Science Center.


Creative Art Center 
In Creative Art Center the children did some Amazing and Fun Creations this month. They made a Star Headband, Sun Color Art, Moon Rocks, Rock Planet Shakers, Astronaut Puppets, Rocket Ship Twirler and more.


Writing Center 
This month , as with every month the curriculum includes so many writing opportunities. The children enjoyed tracing the  planet words , with the word cards in the writing center. They also enjoyed writing the wall word words on the post cards. I also place a few extra journals in the writing center for the children to write in. They also take their own journal home. The children love writing in writing center. We also focus on 3 different letters of the Alphabet each month.



Sensory and I Spy Comets in Space 

In the sensory bins the children enjoyed finding planets and astronauts. The sorted the planets & astronauts and counted what they found. They love looking up with their “ I Spy Glasses “ to find the pictures on the poster.

What do you see in the Sky at night?
Can you count the stars?
Do you see a planet?


Block Center 
The block center is Always a Favorite. Especially when the theme is Space. The children Loved building Space Stations. 
In the Experience Early Learning Toy Box a Space Gear Building Set was included and it has been a major hit with my children! I may have to bring it out a few times during the year since they love it so much!❤️


This month the story included in the curriculum is ‘Up in  Space’. The children loved it. As I read it to the children I used the story pieces. After I was done I placed the story pieces and book in the library center so the children could use them to re-tell story to their friends. 
The children also use the library center to pretend they are doing circle time.❤️

Table Top Math
During the month the children enjoy several different table top math activities. 
The curriculum included Building Comets and Stars, Trip to Mars Game, Space Puzzle, Roll a Rocket Ship and More.


Make & Play Activity- Rocket Ship Twirler







The children have enjoyed learning about Space & Sky and the Fun Learning Centers. I love Experience Early Learning Curriculum . It is amazing.😍
