Spell Outloud has an ABC letter box that is a combination sensory tub and alphabet box. It’s a great addition to a unit focusing on a particular letter sound. Note: there are helpful links in Learning to Read Can Be Just a Fun Game on how to introduce letter sounds.
Astronaut Unit Links for Preschoolers
Maureen from Spell Outloud shares letter sound activities at Totally Tots. Recently, she paired her ABC letter box with an “A is for astronaut” theme.
Here some other fun activities for an astronaut unit from around the blogosphere:
On Our Shelves – January from Counting Coconuts has many space-theme activities. A number of those would be appropriate for an astronaut theme. There are also many wonderful photos showing attractive ways to display activities on trays, a helpful Montessori principle.
