High Flying Times

Storytime today was all about space and rockets! We read an Ezra Jack Keats book about kids with so much imagination that junk took them on a space adventure! It was called Regards to the Man in the Moon, and the illustrations were beautiful! We read about sheep in space in the book Sheep Blast Off! by Nancy Shaw. Our final book was Here in Space by David Milgrim, where a boy and his pets investigated all the wonders of Planet Earth.
Next came two crafts! On black paper, we made a tinfoil rocket flying through a starry sky. The rocket's flames were made of strips of crepe paper. We sure had fun with all those circle and star stickers!
Then we quickly colored a white strip of paper, made a cylinder with it, taped it up and folded a nose cone at the top. We stuck it on a straw launch pad, blew into the straw, and sent our paper rockets flying!

High flying times at the Gordon-Nash this morning! Such fun!!
