Today we learned about turtles. Turtles are reptiles that live in ponds,rivers, lakes and even oceans. Turtles eat algae, insects, crawfish, fish, tadpoles and even frogs. These cold blooded reptiles have existed for over 200 million years.
The kids made a turtle pull toy today. They are encouraged to decorate the shell and body. We also played shell math, I labeled cups, and put the turtle mat on the table. They picked a cup and identified the numeral and put the "turtle shell" on the matching turtle. We also traced letter Nn in our fine motor journals.
