That's right...we have been learning about space and everything that it has to offer! We learned about the order of the planets from the Sun. The order of the planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Now, we did not forget about Pluto...we discussed that Pluto is now a dwarf planet so it is not big enough to be a planet like us. This week, we also worked on our letter and number recognition with various space themed activities. At the science table, we had an awesome sun, star, and planet balancing activity where the sun is the center and the children had to put the planets and stars on each side to balance it out. In the sensory bin this week, the children had fun playing with the mini astronauts, aliens, rockets and spaceships that we had in there. The coolest part of it all...those objects are able to be taken apart and put back together. This week, we also learned about the letter Nn. We made a list of Nn words, read the Nn book and sang the letter Nn song. It has bee a fun filled week of space exploration, learning about the different planets and how astronauts live in space. We are happy to see everyone back after the holidays and hope that you have a fun and safe weekend!
