This powerpoint presentation includes a monthly science theme for preschoolers; printable cards with the month and an image related to the theme (great for classroom calendars); informational slides for each month; and printable materials related to each month's theme and image.
The informational slides include a few key pieces of information for preschoolers to learn - "pegs of knowledge" that are reasonable for a 3 to 5 year old child to learn or memorize. It is a great building block for future science units. Teachers can also use their discretion to pick and choose informational bullet points based on their child's level.
The printable slides use the month's science image and contain circles with either the alphabet or numbers (1 - 20). Prior to use, the teacher will need to print (using the online Avery template for Avery coding label products) or make their own stickers with the letters of the alphabet or the numbers 1 - 20. Students then peel off the sticker, locate it's match on the worksheet, and place the sticker on it's matching letter or number. Great for number and letter recognition - excellent pre-reading skill.
There are two levels of alphabet pages. Each month contains a worksheet with the entire alphabet and a worksheet with only a certain number of letters. The amount of letters builds throughout the entire year.
