    A dark sky alight with stars ….. Planets viewed through amazing telescopes ….. Is there really life on Mars? …… The idea of what outer space holds is intriguing to many of us. Children are too young to grasp the entire concept of space – solar systems, galaxies and our Universe…. For that matter, many of us are confused!! Here is a great explanation of the difference from NASA. The following is excerpts from https://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/news-display.cfm?News_ID=573 Our Solar System consists of our star, the Sun, and its orbiting planets (including Earth), along with numerous moons, asteroids, comet material, rocks, and dust. Our Sun is just one star among the hundreds of billions of stars in our Milky Way Galaxy. The universe is all of the galaxies – billions of them! NASA’s telescopes allow us to study galaxies beyond our own in exquisite detail, and to explore the most distant reaches of the observable universe. In this Unit, children learn about space through these hands-on activities: • Create a picture of planets and orbits using various painting techniques • Use rockets for a trio of mathematical activities • Pretend to ‘walk on the moon’ like an astronaut There are so many things to do in the great outdoors. Invite the children to come up with other ideas to incorporate into your planning all year long. Think about this (again from https://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/news-display.cfm?News_ID=573) You are one of the billions of people on our Earth. Our Earth orbits the Sun in our Solar System. Our Sun is one star among the billions in the Milky Way Galaxy. Our Milky Way Galaxy is one among the billions of galaxies in our Universe. You are unique in the Universe!

  • ‘Alphabet Under Construction’ Unit of Study Highlights Book by Denise Fleming Airbrushing A ….. Buttoning B ….. Carving C …… In Alphabet Under Construction, Mouse finds 26 ways to add a construction ‘flavor’ to the letters of the alphabet. Children will have fun designing, creating and ‘constructing’ their own letters. The more children are exposed to letters and words, the more they see writing and reading as an important way to communicate. There are MANY books that use the alphabet to explore other topics or content areas. This is a great way to help preschoolers (and even school-agers) develop and expand their vocabulary. Loving letters and words can lead to a life-long love of reading and writing. There are a lot of fun, learning activities that can be planned using the letters of the alphabet. Through hands-on activities, children: • Create through illustrations a ‘word wall/pictionary’ of construction words • Use cardboard boxes to build, (and rebuild), a variety of structures • Demonstrate their agility and balance on ‘letter balance beams’ • Make yummy vegetable soup and fruit salad, (identifying vegetables and fruits based on letters of the alphabet) You will be amazed at how children start using more descriptive vocabulary when they talk about what they are doing. The more they learn, the more they want to share with you!
