....In a Galaxy Far, Far Away....

This is my new assistant.  As you can see, she's so very lazy helpful.
I love that she takes such an interest in kindergarten....

Anyhoo, we began our our Space unit this week. I hang inflatable planets from the ceiling and love to see the excitement in the kids as they enter the room! Here are some solar system illustrations:
{love the incredible work they did}

Here is a rhyming game that I made a few years ago.  They have to match the work on the word on the rocket to the rhyming word on the star.  

Here are a few of the USA rockets they made:

Glitter {who doesn't LOVE glitter} Milky Way 

Paper towel rockets.

Probably the best part of the week....

More to come next week. 


  1. Thank you for sharing the cute pics!! My cat, Bella (named before the Twighlight saga), does the same thing...she has to be the center of attention. Anything I have on the floor or even on my desk becomes her bed...and she loves it when I get new shoes. She will actually climb into the box and lay right on top of the shoes...it is sooo stinkin' cute..

    Have a great Friday!!
