This Little Piggie Came to School....in a Book Bag!
Most teachers just think we have seen it all (mostly because we have) well anyway. Something new happened in my classroom this past Friday! One of my sweet little girls came up to me first thing and said, "Mrs. Winchell my guinea pig is in my book bag." I said, "What??? Are you sure?" and she nodded that sweet little head. Being an animal lover and knowing this little girl doesn't make stuff up. I asked her to get her book bag and there in the bottom of it was a sweet little baby guinea pig. I knew this sweetie had guinea pigs. She had brought me a picture of them! According to her it just amazingly crawled in there and she didn't know! We all just about fell over but it was the cutest thing in the world so we loved it up and put it in a box. We already have a class reading guinea pig so we had all the supplies we needed. That guinea pig was the sweetest little thing. It had a great day at school and was delivered safely to Dad at the end of the day. It was great fun on a Friday. As with any big happening we need to talk about it and then we need to write about it. I created this fun writing activity for your kiddos to imagine what they might bring to school in their book bags! You can download it here.
I'm sure your children will come up with some delightful ideas. And remember just when you thought you had seen it all you haven't!
