Blast Off: Space Vocabulary Word Printable Activities

I decided to capitalise somewhat on the huge amount of interest our space unit is generating to work on some spelling and vocbulary items. If you are using the Lab of Mr Q's Earth Science Curriculum then these printables will fit right in.

The vocabulary words covered in these printable activities are:

  • Astronomy
  • Telescope
  • Universe
  • Galaxy
  • Milky Way
  • Stars
  • Comet
  • Sun

Spelling Mats

All About Spelling Tiles fit onto these mats with ease. Since we use AAS and have the tiles out all of the time it just made sense for me to make these spelling mats suitable to use with the AAS Letter Tiles.

My plan for these is to laminate them and use a baking tray. That way I am not wasting too much printer ink and I can file them away for future use. My guess is that they will be used at least 3 - 6 more times over the years to come.

Vocabulary Match Up Cards

These will printed and laminated and used for matching the definition to the vocab words. My aim is for the children to know all of these definitions, but to be able to retell them in their own words, not necessarily to parrot these back verbatim.

Copywork Pages

There are two sets of copywork pages in this file. Since I have two children at quite different levels this will meet both of their needs.

The first set is simply the vocabulary word and the beginning sound, with a place to draw a picture.

The second set also includes the definitions from the vocabulary match up cards above. The line spacing on the second set is slightly smaller, to cater for the older child.

I hope you can put these printables to good use.
