"Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown

"Goodnight Moon is a short poem of goodnight wishes from a young rabbit preparing for--or attempting to postpone--his own slumber. He says goodnight to every object in sight and within earshot, including the 'quiet old lady whispering hush.'" ~ Amazon editorial review
Aubrey is playing with the "red balloon" in the vignette we set up in a corner of the room with rocking chair and bunny, mouse, little house, pictures of bears in chairs and cow jumping over the moon, hanging mittens and socks, plus a table, lamp, phone, comb, brush, and bowl (all out of picture view). Unfortunately, I forgot to take a full picture of the vignette.
Aubrey did the story-sequencing cards and other lapbook activities from Homeschool Share.
Of course the girls had to have "a bowl full of mush" (oatmeal) each morning for breakfast.

We focused on learning the letter "M" for "moon" by doing the phonics program on Starfall and word search and writing from First-School.
Aubrey and Addison both enjoyed the "M&M" activities from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  Aubrey did cutting and M&M pattern building,
while Addison worked on M&M sorting and pattern matching.  Guess what we ate for snack that day!

Aubrey did the lapbook activities from Homeschool Share which included learning her phone number and the basics of a clock.  She learned the phases of the moon, too.

Coloring, writing, word-search, day and night matching and story item counting from First-School, and the publishers website.

We borrowed Papa Nash's telescope and spent several nights looking at the moon.

I was very pleased with the photo I was able to capture with the 22x zoom on my Nikon P100 bridge camera.
