Frog eggs and fun....

Honestly, there could be no better grade than Kindergarten. Where else can you completely go off track and learn about a whole new topic simply because someone brought frog eggs. This is exactly what happened today. One of our students brought a huge jar of frog eggs, they were mesmerizing to our Kindergarten kids. This jar led to the drawing of frogs, learning about the lifecycle, making a display for the whole elementary school, reading frog books and sheer amazement about our environment and the things that are in that environment. Today's experience reinforced to me how nature excites a child. Have a look at the pictures below and then go play outdoors with your child, you will be amazed at what you will find together.

Hi Guys,
We had some frog's eggs in our class last year. We hoped that they would turn into frogs but we only got as far as very very fat tadpoles before we had to put them back in the pond during Christmas break. We hope you have more luck. Frogs and tadpoles are so cool!
