A Pillow of Their Own

As we get ready for out BIG first grade event that supports our learning of the solar system, the children were encouraged to make a pillow with their families. The pillows are displayed in the lobby for all to see. As they came in, parents wrote all kinds of interesting explanations such as "Sean wanted the sun on one side and the moon on the other," or "David had to have a pillow made into his favorite plant - Mars!" They came in as round moon, suns and planets, shaped like quarter moons, stars, comets, space ships and Star War figures with glow in the dark stars and baubles glued and sewn on. Parents tied, sewed and stitched their way into a delightful family project. Enjoy our solar creations!
