I connected our study of space with reading and writing. For our culminating Space Unit activity, we read Here Come the Aliens. After we created our own alien, we filled in the missing adjectives and nouns in a mad lib. We used thesauruses to find interesting adjectives. We were surprised at how adjectives can change a story. You’ll definitely want to come down our hallway for a closer look at this project!
I read one of my favorite stories to the children. It is filled with literary devices: onomatopoeia, personification, hyperboles, and alliteration. Lots of allusions to folktales, such as The Little Red Hen, as well as puns.
