Happy New Year! Oh what a great way to start the year by welcoming a new member to our Pre-K Family. We decided to get a class pet turtle. We named him “danger” because we all agreed that he is very “makulit” (naughty). We are looking forward to spending the rest of our school year with him!
We’ve been discussing all about animals in our Science class so we were all very excited to have a class pet. Before anything else, our teacher talked to us about Pet Care. Having a pet is not easy! It’s like having a baby in our classroom.
Pets also need love and care. We connected what we know about living things and plotted out what our pet “danger” might need. We found out that just like humans and plants, animals need food, shelter, water, and air to live.
We also thought about the different ways we can care for our pet. This means learning how we should wash our hands before and after playing with him. He also needs to be able to walk around and not be locked up in a cage so we make sure to take him out at least once a day. Sometimes, we even take him with us during play time.
We also learned how he needs to be fed everyday to keep him alive. Of course, we also learnt how to clean his house. We are all very happy to have “danger” in our class!
