One day, the Ladybug group was playing outside when suddenly, one child exclaimed, “LOOK! A SPIDER!”
Everyone rushed towards our spider spotter and saw a HUMUNGOUS spider dropping to the ground! Our eyes widened with wonder and excitement as the spider slowly ascended up a thin strand of thread all the way back to the ceiling.
While the spider was climbing, our curious group of Kinders started asking some thought provoking questions like,
“How does it move?”
“Where is it going?”
"How come it doesn't fall?"
. The Kinders also used this time to discuss what to name our new friend and eventually settled on “Mr. Skinny Leg Spinner” and “Mr. Skinny Legs” for short.
That afternoon, the Ladybugs were very eager to tell the Caterpillar group all about “Mr. Skinny Leg Spinner”! With all the hype and excitement surrounding "Mr. Skinny Legs", more and more questions started pouring out of the Kinders and the educators!
This inspired us to post all of our questions under our “I Wonder” wall in the kinder room!
Over the next few weeks, we plan on investigating the questions that we have about our creepy crawly friend! I can't wait to discover what we will learn!
