Episode 33: Alien Pursuit

Click here to listen to: Alien Pursuit

Hi All,

We want to send out a special thanks to Mover Rich of the Imagination Movers for recording a bumper for us. Speaking of moving your imagination, our kids have really been showing interest in the Sci-Fi theme lately. They pretend they are either astronauts in outer space or aliens from another world looking for a way to "phone home".  Their story lines are out of this world!  What type of stories do you create using your imagination?

What did you say? A word of the day! In our story there are many
juicy words that are fun to use and say.

apparatus:  any complex instrument or mechanism for a particular purpose.
clamor: a loud uproar
pesky: annoyingly troublesome
pursuit: an effort to secure or attain.

Try these activities to keep your imagination glowing after hearing the story.

1. Download the free app, "Make a Martian". Send us your creation to or post them on our Facebook page. Here are some examples:

2. Create your own martian by using this free printable page, "Make Your Own Martian". Send us your creation to or post them on our Facebook page.

After listening to the story, can you recall the details to answer these questions?

1. What does the family use to disable the first ship?
2. What did the boy find on the car when they arrived home?
3. Who gave each other a high five in the car? 
4. Why were the aliens in pursuit of the family?

We want to send out bright birthday wishes to:

Sofia A of New Jersey

Sophie of New York 

Garrett D of Maryland

Grandpa B of New York

We hope your day SPARKLED!

As always we look forward to watching the glow grow brighter with 
the many stories we can share together!
