One thing I enjoy about homeschooling is the opportunity it allows for our whole family to learn together. During our recent space unit, my husband and I read tons of books about space to our kids, and I think we learned as much about our solar system as our kids did!
Space is such a fascinating topic of study. It literally boggles my mind sometimes to contemplate the entire universe and how vast it is. It’s crazy to know that our planet is just one of billions of planets in our galaxy, and our galaxy is just one of billions of galaxies in the universe!
A lot of kids are drawn to understanding space. And indeed, studying space and the cosmos gives children a better idea of their place in our vast universe. In that spirit, I have created a Planets Do-a-Dot Printables Pack for all the aspiring astronauts, astronomers, and space researchers to enjoy.
Note: For more space-related printables, see my Space Unit Study page.
My Planets Do-a-Dot Printables pack contains 19 pages of planets do-a-dot worksheets. As kids complete these worksheets, they will work on one-to-one correspondence, shapes, colors, patterning, letters, and numbers.
The activities in my Planets Do-a-Dot Printables pack are designed to be completed using do-a-dot markers.
The thick size of do-a-dot markers makes them easy for little hands to grasp, so do-a-dot markers are wonderful for young children who have not yet developed the fine motor skills to use a pencil or crayon. However, do-a-dot markers can certainly be enjoyed by older kids as well.
And what if you do not own do-a-dot markers? Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to enjoy my Planets Do-a-Dot Printables without do-a-dot markers. In this post I’ve shared lots of ways to use do-a-dot printables to support your children’s learning, with plenty of ideas for kids from toddlers through elementary school.
Here is a sneak peak at the activities included in my Planets Do-a-Dot Printables pack:
The activities in this pack cover a range of skills, which means that these do-a-dot worksheets are likely to appeal to toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary students. Plus, if you borrow some ideas from my post on 15+ ideas for using do-a-dot printables for learning, you may find ways to use these printables with even older kids!
