Space Themed Morning Basket

As the summer approaches each year we shift into more relaxed homeschooling, because of this the majority of our “planned” learning happens during our morning basket time. Because of that I have restructured how we will do our morning basket for the next few months.

We will focus daily on bible, logic, journal, read aloud, and movement and then Emily will get to choose at least “one more thing” from our basket of fun. So everyday we will get bible, logic, journal, read aloud, movement, and one more thing done. Our theme for the month of August is Space.

What’s in our Space themed morning basket?

The main things we will be using this month are The Story of Astronomy and 100 Facts about Space.

For bible, we will be using the Space Devotions from Indescribable. We love this devotional so much. The way is combines scripture and science is so unique and fun.

For logic, we will be using the Professor Noggin Space, we love these games!

For journal, we will still be using our Q&A a day for kids. This journal is the perfect family keepsake: A place for parents and children to share the evolution of thoughts, feelings, and dreams over the years, or a journal for kids who want to keep a time capsule of their own ideas about the world—whimsical or serious.

For read aloud, we will be reading through I Love You, Micheal Collins.

For movement, we will be using Space themed Cosmic Kids Yoga videos on YouTube.

For language arts, we will be using Funny Fill In Space Adventure (similar to Madlibs) and The Day the Universe Exploded My Head (Poems to take you into Space and Back Again).

The extras I have are the Solar System, Constellations, and Moon Phases printable packs from Growing Brave. As well as Astronaut Academy and Blast Off on a Mission to Explore Space activity books.

The books I have for her to read are: Usborne Beginners Living in Space, The Solar System, Astronomy, and Sun, Moon & Stars. I also have the Catstronaut book series as well.

The books I have for us to read together are: What are Stars, What is the Moon, What is it Like in Space, Look Inside Space, Questions and Answers about Space, Big Book of Rockets and Spacecrafts, Big Book of Stars and Planets, National Geographic Night Sky, Look Up! The Science of Stargazing, Mousetronaut, Mousetronaut Goes to Mars, Moon Shot, One Giant Leap, Daring Dozen, Margaret and the Moon, and Hidden Figures.

The hands on activities I have are: Space Play Dough Kit, Astronaut Sticker Book, Space Wipe Clean Book, Melissa & Doug Solar System Floor Puzzle, and Kid Wonder Astronaut Box.
