YOU Are Stardust!
I welcomed you back to another year of school by reading the book "You are Stardust" by Elin Kelsey. I believe that enjoying this story together is a wonderful way to start our year for a few reasons. First, it speaks of our connection to the universe and planet Earth. Our science studies will include exploring from the center of our planet to the farthest reaches of the universe! Secondly, it conveys that each one of us are a a special miracle blessed with life! Our grace and courtesy lessons this year will help us make the most of our short time on this planet by improving our relationships with others. Both of these concepts are deeply rooted in our Montessori philosophy.
It is my hope that during the upcoming school year you will not only learn a lot about math and science, but also about yourself and your personal purpose on this planet.
Don't forget: YOU ARE STARDUST!
P.S. Check out this article from Science News for Students from the Society for Science and the Public for the science behind the story.
