Friday sounds like a great day for a freebie!  This week in our preschool lessons, we learned about Day and Night.  So I made for reference for my preschool munchkins, and wanted to share!  Scroll down to get this printable for yourself!

Day and Night Sorting Activity FreebieDay and Night Sorting Activity Freebie

As you can see, this printable is super simple for the little ones.

First we talked about what we have seen in the sky at both day and night.  Then we talked about things we like to do during the day and night.  And we also looked out the window and named the objects we could see in the sky.

We reviewed the first page every day. Then on Friday, we used the second page as a cut and paste to sort the objects in the day and night skies.

This time, we used construction paper and each student cut and glued their own copy of the activity.  But we have also done similar activities as a group project and used poster board instead.

This is also a fantastic resource to display on your daycare walls!  Parents and anyone who might come check out your daycare space (especially DHS and ERS inspectors) love to see that you are:

1. teaching the kids something

2. displaying their own work.

Plus, recognizing objects in the day and night skies is a PreK standard in PA.  And displaying children’s work helps them build confidence and pride in their abilities.  And another bonus is that the students will likely to visit their work often and get a review of the concept of day and night!

Head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store to grab this freebie now.  And don’t forget to follow my store while you’re there. 😉


Since I spread this theme over the course of the week for us,  I also used some additional activities I found on Pinterest to fill in our science block the other days.  Check out my PreK Science Board for some of the ideas!
