Amazing Astronauts

We are starting our unit on space this week and I am so excited. I love teaching about space because there are so many fun things to do with this unit. Our main story is "The Moon" and we are going to start researching the moon in the next few days for a writing project.  I am mostly focusing on the moon this week. I am loving Cara Carroll's unit on the moon. It is adorable and full of great activities. I also love Babbling Abby's moon unit. These are great resources if you are teaching about the moon.

I am a big fan of crafts and love to include one a few times a week. I usually don't have a ton of extra time so I try to do a quick one in the middle of the week and a more involved one on Fridays. One of my little girls has got me figured out and told her mother that she can't miss school on Fridays because that's when we do crafts. I guess I've got them hooked too!

I came up with this fun astronaut craft to use with my kiddos.

It comes with all the patterns to make the craft, 6 pages of writing paper, and bulletin board letters. You can check it out in either of my store. I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did!

The first 2 people to comment on my blog and leave their email address will get the packet for free.
