We have just loved every Poppins Book Nook theme this year and this month is no different! This month's theme is Beyond Our Planet. I immediately thought of the book Albie and the Space Rocket by Andy Cutbill because we already own this book and it is so fun! Albie is a little boy trying to figure out what happened to his bed. He discovers all kinds of crazy things going on in his home including two moose dancing the tango in the restroom and an entire colony of penguins! Finally he finds that a group of elephants has transformed his bed into a space rocket. It is a very wacky and fun book, C loves it!
To go along with our story, C decided to design a rocket of her own. She went with a more traditional approach. We just used some construction paper, scissors, glue and a bit of thin cardboard to create this little rocket. I apologize for the terrible cell phone picture, my camera wasn't cooperating.
As soon as I snapped this picture, C grabbed her rocket and was on the moon in a matter of minutes! She had a great time pretending with this theme. We also used this opportunity to review what we have learned so far in our Apologia Astronomy program. We just went through her notebooking journal to see what we have recorded. It was a great time to review. We loved the opportunity to dig in to this fun book during our school time this month!
