Wonderful Worms

      Since it was Earth Day yesterday, this seemed like a good time to read our Wonderful Worms book.  I stopped at Walmart on the way to school and bought some big fat night crawlers. The kids questioned me about why they had a plate at their seat, since it was not snack day.  I read the book and showed a great video about the wonder of worms, then I gave each of them a night crawler on their plate to examine.  Some were eager to pick them up, but a few-- not so much.  We made charts to describe worms, they compared sizes, and gave them a name. It was great fun, and I got several hugs for being the best teacher ever -- and here are a few pictures.  Can you guess which ones were not worm lovers?






   Now they are writing "Worms are cool." 
   But also crawling around on the floor instead of sitting -- oh, well!



  1. I think you are the bestest teacher ever,too!

  2. Thank you, Sheila, for the kind words. I think they are easily impressed...


I love it when you comment!!
