Grandparent's are Out of this World!

Monday we had the opportunity and honor to celebrate Grandparent's Day at APS! We have so many loved children! Thank you to all of the Grandparent's and Special Friends that took time out of their busy days to join us. 

Our reading series has two back to back stories about space. So, we have been learning and studying about astronauts, stars, and planets. This Friday we will wrap up our study. Thank you to the parents who sent "Space Snacks" for the children to enjoy.

Yesterday, we read a nonfiction passage about Constellations. We did a shared writing about what a constellations is. Here is what we came up with:
 A constellation is a group of stars. They form a picture or shape. Each one has a name.

Then, each student was able to create their own fictional constellation. I was so proud of how creative they were! 
Check out the two below:

 "Big Spinner"

"Midnight Cafe"

No study would be complete without several fiction as well as nonfiction books.
