Signs and sounds of Spring, as told by Kinderlings.

“Oooohhhh worms!”
“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?”
“Ew…worm 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?”
“Dirt. See?”
“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?)

Random musings from a random homosapien. Just trying to enjoy what I can of this ride called life.


  1. It totally WAS a science lesson of the BEST quality! Hands on, questioning, exploration, “If you have a worm in your pocket, please put it in the grass!” HAHAHAHA!! Said like one who KNOWS!!

  2. Oh, I love hearing about kindergarten classes! (Even if I could never be a kindergarten teacher myself!) It was so fun to hear their explorations and wonderings about worms. I especially loved the ending: “If you have a worm in your pocket, please put it in the grass! ” Some things need to be spelled out for students!
