New Turtle Friend
Last week our class received a classroom gift as a pet. Ms. Heather kindly donated the turtle and we had a long discussion with her as she taught us all about the turtle. This week we needed to come up with a name for the new classroom pet. The children used a graph to help them vote on the name. The votes were so close that the children decided to give the turtle a first, middle, and last name. The name is Tinato Pearl Cobb.
What we've learned about the turtle so far:
Mariah, "The turtle sometimes snaps your finger so you have to be careful not put your finger in the tank because he could snap you and you would have to go to the nurse."
Esther, "Turtle is SO cute!"
Aubrey, "The turtle can bite a plate."
Ava, "The turtle loves eating shrimp."
Breah, "I saw a tiny fish in there."
Gunner, "The turtle is really small."
Braylon B., "Don't put your hand in the cage because he has germs and he might bite you."
Amy Kate, "It's a girl turtle."
Bradley, "It might bite you, so don't get in the tank."
Terrah, "The shell of the turtle is so hard."
Natalie, "The shell has dangerous germs on it. The light helps the shell dry to stay healthy."
