Our Great Big World, Kindergarten Unit 6

We've been reading nonfiction text and learning about our Sun and Moon. We will continue to collect facts about the sun and moon for some fun informative writing projects.

Reading - We will be reading a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts about the Sun and Moon. As we read we will try using the 5 W's (who, what, when, where, why) to ask and answer questions for better understanding.

Try visiting the PebbleGo website to read about the Sun and Moon. www.pebblego.com
