Wormsssss

Signs and sounds of Spring, as told by Kinderlings.

“EW! WORMS!”
“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”
“ooOOOOoooo….”
“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?)

Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge. I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by!

  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!
