This afternoon we learned about all the full moon names for each month from Full Moon Lore by Ellen Wahi and Elliot created his own night sky. I also used a moon chart by @the.silvan.reverie as a little guide.
This morning for our nature study we read Moon by Steve Tomecek and completed a mosaic project of the phases of the moon with a reference guide from @brighterdaypress. I used thick cardstock and dried beans and plan on keeping them for future lessons. Elliot also did a few worksheets to practice writing and counting. The moon is simply amazing and we love learning about it.
This afternoon we spent some time outside and then learned a little more about the moon. After reading Moon by Brittany Teckentrup, Elliot completed some themed worksheets, colored a MOON letter sheet and drew a moon in our nature journal. We also read more into how the moon was formed in The Kids Book of the Night Sky by Anne Love & Jane Drake. Such a cool book!
It’s moon week in our nature study! Elliot and I started our lesson by reading The Moon Book by Gail Gibbons and worked on some themed worksheets. Then studied the phases of the moon with a print from @brighterdaypress and used felt to mark them on a chart I created. We are diving into all things night sky over here.
