Super Moon

Did y’all remember too look at the super moon on Saturday night?

Uh ya, me neither. Totally forgot.

BUT, the whole super moon hub-bub reminded me that I forgot to tell you about our moon study we did in March. We took about two weeks and went over some main moon points. I’ll be honest, I’m not the greatest at teaching science, so when I do it has to be fun!

I hung this on the wall and you can see where someone-I will not name names, but I can say it starts with an S and ends with an -ophia, got very hungry? And um…ate the full moon. Wow. Just wow.
We also made moon finders with a paper plate and a Popsicle stick. Super easy. We used them a lot to figure out what moon was what. I love hearing my 6-year-old using words like “waning gibbous.” It’s just cute…hey, we homeschool. We think things like that are cute.

We also made these folder books out of a file folder. I found the idea on pinterest…all of these ideas for that matter. Here’s a link to my homeschool board.  It’s all folded and painted and prettied and holds all the things we made.

So there you have it…our little moon study.
It’s the last week of school. We’re winding down for sure. Doing our final tests and reports, squaring away the papers and clutter. I’m starting to plan for next year already, dog-earring pages in catalogs. This is usually the time of year people start thinking that they might homeschool next fall. Last spring I wrote a series on homeschooling. You can find the links below.
