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?**

Now that is a good activity. In fact, I can see where it can be expanded to a lesson to teach the children about the planets. I really admire your creative approach to teaching.

Thanks Mel. I think Nicky will like this.

I hope he does. 🙂

Very cute. It made me think of the song I sing with my girls “Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon.” At the end we count down for our rocket ship to take off.

Miles from Tomorrowland is a favorite in our house. Even the one year old knows the theme song… So cute
