Signs and sounds of Spring, as told by Kinderlings.
“Don’t touch it!”
“Yes touch it. Keep it alive!”
“Throw it in the grass”
“Look how it makes a S when it wriggles”
“This one made a U”
“DO. NOT. STEP. ON. THE. WORMS. Don’t do it.”
“Mrs. Ortiz, why are there worms?”
“Do worms poop?”
“What if it poops on your hand?” *sound of laughter*
“EWWWWWWW” *tosses worm, sound of disgust*
“Why do worms smell like rain?”
“Fish eat worms. They do! That’s why we use them to go fishin”
“Well what do worms eat?”
“No, I think they live in dirt. I don’t know what they eat…”
Please do not put that worm in your pocket. It needs the dirt and grass to live. *scans crowd* If you have a worm in your pocket, please put it in the grass!
You all have been doing some wonderful Wondering today.
(Can I count this as my science lesson?)
