Space Preschool Activities

Space Preschool Activities

Are you interested in space themed preschool activities. We are blasting off into outer space as we learn, play, and create. My focus for this unit was on having a good balance between the academic learning through play AND the arts, sensory bins, and STEM activities. My hope with this is to meet all of your preschooler’s learning needs and to really teach the whole child.

Literacy skills covered: letter identification, beginning sounds, handwriting, EDITABLE name activites, EDITABLE sight word activites.

Math skills covered: one to one correspondence, counting, number identification, 2D shapes, and patterns.

Each activity includes a detailed lesson plan with tips to help you complete the activity or give to a parent volunteer or sub with confidence. These space preschool activities are great to use during center activities or small group instruction. This space unit is designed for preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten.
