As I prepare for next month’s theme on space, I decided to create a Moon Observation Printable for Preschoolers to work on at home with their parents. I’m always looking for ways to engage parents and this is a new activity they may enjoy together at home and even better that it directly relates to our theme.
Moon Observation Printable for Preschoolers
Observing the moon for a week and recording those observations is not “preschool homework”. What it is an opportunity for parents to participate in our curriculum and support the connection between home and school.
Learning together is a wonderful way for parents to connect with their children. It will only take a few minutes and yet, it opens up the opportunity for ongoing learning for the child. We want to support the parents in being their child’s first and most important teacher and family engagement activities support that belief.
I created the form to cover just one week because I believe that would be developmentally appropriate for preschoolers and parents are more likely to participate if it was for one week rather than the full month. If you wanted to observe for the full month, just print multiple pages.
