We LOVE having Peanut in our classroom! She is so curious and the kids just love watching her!
One of our students recently discovered a group of Pill Bugs or "Roly Poly's" in his wood pile. He collected a bunch of them and put them in a container to bring to school. (Big thank you to his mom for encouraging this!) We did a little taste test with Peanut to find out which bugs were her favorites. We keep Meal Worms and Wax Worms in the fridge for her, so we gave her a few of each. Her favorite thing to do is chase after those Roly Poly bugs and eat them as quickly as possible!
She's so fast, I can't even get a picture of her snatching them up. Peanut is also very particular about her fruits and veggies. She loves fruit, but usually turns her nose up at the veggies. (She fits right in with the Kindergarten crowd! Ha!)
The kids are welcome to bring in small amounts of fruits and veggies for her to try and we'd love it if kids would collect worms and Pill Bugs to feed to her. She's a pretty fun little class pet to take care of! We sure love our Peanut!
