Blast Off to the MOON!
4 Jan, 2013. 7 Comments. A Day In First Grade, First Grade, First Grade Science, Free, Kindergarten Science, Preschool Science, Science. Posted By: Kristen Smith
We go back to school next week and will jump right back into learning. Next week we will be blasting off to the moon!! I’ll be TOTALLY honest. I was NOT excited about teaching this until I wrote my lesson plans. Now I am SUPER PSYCHED to teach all about the moon.

My lesson plans for next week look like this:

 

We will read these books next week:

I also wrote two readers for my students to read during our guided reading small group time. As a gift, they are here for you, for FREE!! :) I really hope you and your students enjoy them!
I found this song on youtube and I can imagine my class now rockin’ out to it… We might have to come up with a dance to it. :)

 

We already love this song so we will definitely keep singing it this week!

Also, since it is the first week back we will create a few crafts, make moon dough, a fact flip book and create aliens in our literacy centers.
On Friday not only will we make edible phases of the moon with Oreos but we also will discover what a crater is in a fun hands on Science experiment.
Stay tuned for those activities as we prepare to BLAST OFF! :)

Freebie Fridays

  1. On p. 3 of the book you wrote, “its” is possessive, not a contraction, so it shouldn’t have an apostrophe. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Hot dang, good catch– I’ll upload a new version right now!
