Man on the Moon
Here’s a little Man on the Moon story sack I set up for our daughter to coincide with the Harvest Moon this year. We’ve been following Raising Little Shoots Exploring Nature with Children curriculum for the last couple of weeks and so we’ve had lots of moon related activities. Story sacks are one of our favourite things to share together.
Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram is a a delightful read. Bob, the man on the moon is such a jolly lovely guy. He knows everything about the moon and there are certainly no aliens! It’s a great book for sequencing parts of a story and lots of mathematical opportunities too, especially related to time. When making story sacks I try to collect and make resources for characters, setting and props to help bring the story to life. I’ve written a blog post on setting up story sacks here that you might find helpful.
