Steve is our new Australian stick bug who joined our classroom today.
We have already learned that Steve likes to eat blackberry and raspberry leaves. We don't know much more about stick bugs, so this will become a good inquiry project for us.
We've decided that Steve looks a bit like a dried up leaf. He didn't do much today, but he did dance a little.
As you can see, Mrs. Ross is not at artist, but I did model my story during Writer's Workshop today.
A few kids in the class chose to write about Steve as well.
We will be sharing Steve with Miss Mulder's classroom, so all of our kindergartners get to meet Steve. We have so much to learn about Australian stick bugs! If you'd like to help your child look up information at home about Australian stick bugs, we'd love to interview our experts when they return to the classroom. A trip to Bridges Pets to visit the stick bugs and ask questions of the sales people might be a fun little field trip, if you're over that way!
