S is for Star

Our letter this week was S, and we went with a star theme…here is our learning board for the week:

As always I printed out some fun worksheets for Charlotte to practice her writing…and S is definitely one of the harder ones, so she wasn’t super excited about it. I also found this Star Color by Number. I like color by numbers because I feel like it gives her a chance to practice her numbers, colors, and coloring…a three for one! We also made this Star S from No Time for Flashcards.

Books about Stars:

Stars! Stars! Stars! by Bob Barner. This book actually covered a lot more about planets than stars, but I really liked it. The illustrations are super colorful and the information is presented in a fun, rhyming way. This is a more basic one than some of the others we read this week, so it’s good for younger readers too.

 

Jump Into Science: Stars by Steve Tomecek. This book is packed full of information about stars…I learned a lot. It was presented in an interesting way for kids, but would probably work best for older preschoolers just because it has so much information in it. Of course, you can always just skim it and pull out the parts your child is most interested in.

Stars! Stars! Stars! by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. This is another book packed with information. Minna and her friends have all kinds of questions about stars so they visit the Star Space at the Children’s Museum and explore while learning all about stars.

 

Country: Sweden

I didn’t find any great books about Sweden, but Charlotte colored in this Swedish flag and we did read some Pippi Longstocking. I have some great Swedish Christmas books, but we’ll wait for Christmas for those!

Verse: “The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation…” Exodus 15:2

And if you’re not into the star theme, I thought this superhero theme over at No Time for Flashcards was super fun.
