We had a discussion about what the name the bug and came up with ‘Nice Cozy Bug’. We each took turns holding and looking at Nice Cozy Bug. A focus in our classroom has been observing and stating our wonders. Each student was given the opportunity to share their wonders with the class. Some students did have any wonders about the bug. They were observant of their peers and how they articulated their wonders.
Ms. Tompkins: What do you wonder about ‘Nice Cozy Bug’?
D.D: if he eats ants
D.K: if he eats ants
: if he eats termites
: if he eats grasshopper food
: if it wants to drink
C.C: if it eats grass
D.S: if it has a mommy or daddy
It is exciting how something so simple can lead to such great questions and wonders!
When you find bugs at home, try to take the time to ask your child what they think or wonder about.
