Our book that we worked on in November came in this week! "The Secret Life of Anakin" is a story that talks about the secret life of our sweet anteater mascot! If your child bought a copy of the book, check it out! If not, we have a copy in our classroom! :) It is a wonderful read. So proud of my students for becoming authors and illustrators!
Nothing makes me happier than seeing my students take their knowledge of what they have learned in class and applying it outside of the classroom. In this case, I had two of my students choose a book about space in the reading room today and seeing their faces light up warmed my heart. They would say things like, "Mrs. Cox! Look! Its the Apollo 11 mission we learned about!" and "Wow! That's the Eagle! And the control center in Houston!". They couldn't stop smiling while looking through the book and were amazed at how many things they recognized in the book. In our current Language Arts module, we are learning all about space and the Apollo 11 mission. I just had to capture this sweet-as-can-be moment :)
Hoping that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends! I got to spend the day with my family in Orange County and had a blast! There is so much to be thankful for! :) I will see you all bright and early tomorrow morning! :)
Who knew reading could be so yummy!? I absolutely LOVED getting to read through all of my kiddos book reports! They did a wonderful job on their sandwich book reports and had so much fun working on them! :) Come check out our book report wall outside of the classroom and sneak a peek at some of the awesome book reports my third grade students did!
