Earlier this week I shared about our preschool summer unit, the Solar System. This is always a HUGE favorite with our students. They love learning fun facts about each planet as well as other space objects. We have a new favorite video this year as well which you can see on the earlier post. As I was working on this year's unit and trying to provide new content since many of the kids are the same from last year I decided to create these awesome printables to share with you guys. These are some fun facts that we have been learning and I know many of you guys homeschool your kids or supplement their learning with stuff at home. These printables are currently for PreK and the first one I'm rolling out is just the Inner Planets with the Sun. I am hoping to create the Outer Planets soon and then offering a pack for the entire Solar System as well as older age options and even in Spanish. I really hope you enjoy using these. Each has fun facts about that planet on top and then a coloring sheet on the bottom.
I'm sure you've noticed some changes around my website recently. Things like a few new landing pages (YWAM Ministry Stories, All Things Preschool, Easy Recipes, etc) where you can quickly find related stories. I have also been adding some "you might like these also" links at the bottom of my posts as well to help you navigate through the site a bit easier.
Something else you may have noticed, I am writing more and more about my preschoolers. As my jobs, ministries and responsibilities have changed I have noticed that it is reflected in my blog. And why wouldn't it be; these are stories of my life and the things that I'm thinking and doing so of course the blog would be a reflection of what is going on currently in my life.
As you can see below, this quarter in preschool is all about the Solar System!! YAY!! This unit is by far our class's favoritest (yes, I'm aware this isn't an actual word) thing to study!! They are so very attentive in class and love to learn about each planet, our star the Sun, and how astronauts eat in space. Last year, I found a toddlerish song all about the planets called The Solar System Song, what else. This was a very calming video for our class and began their love of all things solar system! It taught us so much about each planet as well as their order from closest to farthest from the Sun.
Well, this year we have found a NEW favorite song! It's NASA Johnson Style. Below, you can see the video but be forewarned: it is VERY addicting!!
Like this? Check out these awesome Solar System Printables for PreK all about the Inner Planets. I really enjoyed creating these using some fun facts of the things we've been learning! I'm hoping to make some for the rest of the planets & space objects soon! Then my next project is to translate them all & then create some for older kids as well.
In the mean time, check out some other stories about our preschool!
I am on an amazing adventure traveling the world with Jesus. After 7 years of teaching preschool in Alabama, God called me to the mission field in Mexico full time. I led short-term missions trips for 6 years and the Lord opened the door for me to mix both of my passions, missions and teaching. I am now the director of Little Builders Preschool and we will soon be opening a full International K-12 school. The current students are missionary kids but will be open to the local community in the future.
As a full-time missionary, I do not receive a traditional pay check. I rely on the generous support of friends, family & people like you. As any teacher does, much of what we use in our school is purchased by me out of my own personal funds. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our ministry and help our students reach their potential in education.
