For Diego’s birthday, his family gave our class a stellar treat! Our very own MAC class star, part of the Lynx constellation:
Jennifer, Diego’s mom, came in to present us with our star certificate. As we start our Night Sky Journals, it’s fun to look up at the night sky and know that our very own class star is twinkling back at us.
To let Diego’s parents know how excited we are about this unique birthday treat, and to thank them, the class composed a group email (notice the use of one of our special vocabulary words, incredulous):
Thank you for buying us a MAC class star to celebrate Diego’s birthday!
Everyone is super excited that we have a star named after our class! It was really unexpected because we don’t usually get this kind of treat 🙂
Some of us were incredulous; we didn’t believe it was true… But, our teachers assured us it is. Thank you for bringing the picture of the Lynx constellation and sharing it with us.
The donation was great! Thank you for giving it to our class and happy birthday to Diego!
