Turtles and Teachers

We had a special guest in kindergarten enrichment...two actually!  Mrs. Ankerson, a third grade teacher brought a pet turtle for students to observe!  A kindergartener selected turtles as the topic for her interest driven center.....and she and the class were excited to have this real life exhibit!  Students got to see the turtle and ask questions.  The student center gave students a chance to watch a video clip about turtles in the wild, touch a turtle shell and create their own turtles!

I am very thankful to Mrs. Ankerson for taking time out and arranging her schedule to make this happen.  It is great for students to develop relationships across our school....and the students were great at making connections, asking good questions and being respectful of the turtle and Mrs. A!
