More Fun in Space

Sunday, March 25, 2018 No comments

This week was filled with more fun and learning about Space.


Up in Space Story Time

The children enjoyed this Awesome book included in the MGT Curriculum. As I read the book to the children I also showed them the Topic Posters of the Planets as I came to each Planet in the book. They were very focused and enjoyed the book & posters.


Story Telling with story telling pieces for Up in Space 

Each month the children love telling the story with the story telling pieces. I love this learning resource.They enjoy it very much! 

Trip to Mars Game

The children absolutely loved this game. I am so amazed when I watch them play. They take turns and play so well together. They did not need my help or assistance at any time with the game after I explained it to them.๐Ÿ˜

Space Block Center 

With the different themes I try to find playsets that match the theme for the Block Center. It can be a challenge and a little expensive from eBay but the children love it! They were so excited to find a Space Center, Space Ships and Astronauts in the Block Center.

Planet Word Builders

The children enjoyed these planet word building games. Another way to use these is to remove the word building squares and leave the laminated name strips. Then let the children use them as planet word tracers.

Library Center- Space Books 

With each theme I like to purchase books that relate to that theme. The curriculum recommends certain books to go with some of the activities. I try to purchase those and others as well for the children to use. They enjoy coming to the library center to look at and share books. I also use these books during story time. I purchase these from thrift, online thrift or eBay.

Writing Center Resources from MGT Experience More Literacy.

The children have enjoyed these activities from Experience More Literacy- Blast Off to Space . I receive these from Mother Goose Time as a Blog Ambassador.

Music Time- Hey Diddle Diddle -The children had fun singing this song and they also enjoyed Twinkle Twinkle ✨ Little Star ⭐️ 

My Little Journal - Journal Time

Moon Journals

The children enjoyed crumpling paper to make their Moon Journals. We talked about craters on the Moon.

I just wanted to share our classroom. We were away for Spring Break this last Week.

Our Circle Time Area

This is a very busy area in our classroom. It is of course for Circle Time but for other activities as well.This area is also for Story Time, Music Time and Creative Movement. This area is used for Block Center as well.





Our Dramatic Play Area

Dramatic Play is different every month. This month there is a rocket ship and the children love it! They were so excited when they saw it! They love the Space Unit!

Next month it will change to something ocean theme.



Our Writing Center

Our writing center is fun and encourages writing. The children can trace if they choose. They can choose to write on scrap paper. We have words from the theme in the writing center. Their journals are available as well. I have used some learning resources from Mother Goose Time and laminated them to use in the writing and library center.
