Rock Your School Days are always complete with the teachers dressing up and classroom decorations. This was a truly special RYSD, as this was also the day we found out Ohio schools were closing, due to COVID-19. I'm so glad we got to share an OUT OF THIS WORLD day together!
The goal of RYSD is to engage students while challenging them to ROCK their learning! Our class enjoyed learning about the planets, the phases of the moon, and all of the elements of the solar system! The books I'm holding in the top photo are my go-to favorites for teaching about space. I've used them every year! They're simple, yet they are jam-packed with facts. Kids really enjoy them, and they obtain a lot of information from the text and pictures!
Areas of the classroom are decorated for different lessons. We use our classroom house as a focal point for our dramatic play learning. Students were excited to enter the rocket ship! The windows were a part of our Morning Meeting, where we discussed what we see in the sky during the day. The planets were included in our science lesson as we explored each one.

Kids love to dress up as much as the teachers do, of course, for each RYSD, I have hats prepared for morning work. My little aliens were so excited to FLY into our day!
