By The Light Of The Moon...

Hello Science Friends,
There just is no denying it...this is the time of year that the children begin talking about the night. And soon the time will change and the long summer days will seem like a distant memory. But with the change of any season we all look forward to what the coming season has to offer. Right now the children are talking about the sights and sounds of Halloween night. Those conversations had me inspired to look for new books. I came across this book Moonlight by Cynthia Rylant. I was drawn in by the cover and title of the book since they have been hot topics in my classroom this week. As soon as I opened the book I knew I had to have it. There is just something about a Cynthia Rylant book that just sings to me. All this chatter about the night made me think this would be a good time to gather a little inspiration and maybe encourage some observations and non fiction writing about the...night.
If you need to have some observing the night sky fun too just click on the link and grab yours!


  1. I agree with you, during the month of October, children become interested in talking about the night, the creepy things around them, the horror movies they watched and the dreams they had. Another thing is the influence of the moon, that bright moon in making their horror stories really scary...haha...their really kids...

  2. So true! And even I can't stop looking at the moon too!

  3. I love your idea and the book too!

  4. Love it! Having trouble accessing the download though.

  6. So many awesome things here! This is so great. I would love for you to link this, and some of your other amazing ideas, to my weekly Mom's Library Link-Up.

    Thanks and be blessed,
