I am attempting another new blog prompt for me. Today’s is written for Paula’s Thursday Inspiration 63 where this week’s theme is moon.
The sweet photo prompt above made me first think about how intelligent our pets are. They bond together, and to us, to bring joy to the world. I love to sit on my porch swing with my dog, appreciating the views of the moon.
Then my mind wandered to the enjoyment I had teaching astronomy. I typically had a music video on while the students were entering my class and preparing for the day’s lesson. Mr. Parr was always a hit with the kids. He wrote his songs to popular tunes to teach his 6th graders science topics. By the end of the day, after teaching 5 periods, I often had the songs stuck in my head. I enjoyed the opportunity to add yet another way to get my concept across to my students.
