I have another free printable for you today. This one is rocket-themed to fit our letter of the week – R. (Because who says little girls can’t play with rockets?)
Find the download link at the end of this post.
This is similar to the bee counting activity I posted the other day. I’m working on number recognition and counting with the girls.
To use this printable:
Print the pages, laminate, and cut out the rockets and numbers.
To play, have your child pick a number and place it in the empty space in the sentence. “There are ___ rockets heading for the moon.”
If you don’t want to bother with the number cards, you can use a white board marker to write the number instead.
You can also glue velcro on the backs of the rockets and turn this into a busy bag activity. I’m glad I didn’t put velcro on, though, because Angie had fun placing her rockets in different formations, and flying them from earth to the moon and around space.
I think another reason the girls enjoyed this activity is because they both love Miles From Tomorrow. They call each other “Starshine”.
This rocket counting activity is available for free on my Teacher’s Notebook store. Do let me know if you plan to use it, and whether your children enjoy it.
Do your kids watch Miles From Tomorrow?
