Making Connections in JK

One of our JK students was intrigued by a shell in the classroom. Wanting to know more, he set out to research and source more information from a reference book.  Rather than us telling you about the connections he made through his investigation, we wanted to let him tell you. Our warmest thank to S.C. and Mrs. Black for bringing such a wonderful learning moment to life.

Here is his story!

    Here are the answers from S.C.
    1. The lady I was talking to was Mrs. Murgatroyd.
    2. I drew the shell picture in the PreK. room.
    3. Thank you.
    4. Thank you.
    5. I looked at the shells and then I drew the shells and then I coloured them.
    6. Because I thought that there was a crab inside (the grey ‘shell’) and then it got out.
    7. Because I think the crab used his pincers to climb his way through.
