We have noticed that the children have been showing an interest in bugs, so we set up a sensory tub filled with bugs, bug kits and rocks so that the children could search for bugs. Here is a peak at one of many conversations we had as a result of this bug set-up, enjoy!
Teacher: What kinds of bugs are you going to find?
Nathan: White. Going to get a rock.
Teacher: What kind of food do grasshoppers eat?
Silas: I want to use the shovel.
Teacher: What are you going to use the shovel for?
Silas: Dirt. This is hard work. We’re in the silver garden. Welcome to the silver garden.
Silas: I’m going to find a spider.
Teacher: What kind of food does a spider eat?
Teacher: What kind of bugs do you want to find?
Dante: Ooh. Dat green.
Connor: Look. Look. Look.
Teacher: What did you find?
Connor: It’s a bee.
