Yesterday I shared with you some fun “R” Is for Rocket activities.
Today I’ve got one more rocket activity we did. You can do it either as a letter recognition activity or for sight word practice at home.
Letter Recognition Activity
For the preschooler I used a marker and wrote out various lower-case letters all over his piece of construction paper. I decorated the paper with some planets and stars and made a simple paper rocket to go with it.
He had fun flying his rocket around and landing on the letters I asked him to find. (You could use capital letters or numbers as well!)
Sight Word Activity
This is another activity that is easy to alter depending on the level of your child. For the kindergartner I chose a bunch of her sight words and wrote them on the paper.
Again, I decorated it in a space motif and made a paper rocket for her to fly.
The first time we played I let her land on whichever word she wanted to, as long as she read the word first. Then we tried a version where I told her which word to land on and she had to find it.
This sight word activity could easily be adapted to do it with addition/subtraction or multiplication/division facts as well!
