Animals animals everywhere!

This month brings lots of animals to our kindergarten classroom.

First, goldfish and guppies! We read lots of books on fish, both fiction and nonfiction. We learned about the parts of a fish, how they breathe, and where they live.

Then, more worms! After we studied worms and made a worm compost, we looked at the difference between red worms and nightcrawlers. We made Venn diagrams comparing and contrast earthworms and people as well.

And joining us next week will be baby chicks! Well, they're currently still eggs, and are expected to hatch late next week. We have begun studying chickens, and started our own chicken journal, in which we can record what we learn about chickens (such as their life cycle) and keep a countdown til the eggs hatch!

As we study more and more, we continue to add questions to our Wonder Wall as they arise. There isn't always time to answer all the questions that kindergarteners have, so a Wonder Wall is a great way to encourage more questions to be answered at a later time! Here are some of the most recent ones:
