Pioneer students create a book for Superintendent Bahr about the moon

Pioneer Elementary School parents and Superintendent Bahr were treated to a special party last week at Pioneer Elementary School in Taylor Marshall’s K/1 class as her students presented their class non-fiction book about the moon. 

At the start of the year, Superintendent Bahr visited Marshall’s class as a part of Peninsula Reads to share her favorite childhood book, “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak. The students noticed the moon changed shape in the book’s pictures, and they wondered how long the main character’s journey took in the story. The superintendent challenged the students to research and find out. 

Marshall’s class investigated the phases of the moon and together wrote a collaborative non-fiction book about how the moon waxes and wanes in the sky, and hosted a book publishing party for Superintendent Bahr and their parents on Thursday, March 16. The students believe Max spent at least one month with the wild things in his story.

Take a look at some photos of the party below.
