W is for worms

We are exploring worms not so much the letter  "w" but why not use that to my advantage.  We started yesterday with making a worm compound.

 She is excited at the concept but not sure what to expect to in a few days we will go back out and see if there is anything exciting going on and by that I mean (please,please) visible trails.
We practiced writing letter w and discussed all things "w" and we found several other worksheets to emphasize worms. 
Thanks to http://halfwayhomeschooling.blogspot.com/2013_02_01_archive.html?m=1 for this great idea.  She had fun making this.
We also got a little dirty and spelled it together when we created this piece of art with tea granules!
We found a great website.  http://m.extension.illinois.edu/worms/
 She listened intently and was able to answer questions asked at the end of the different sections. I think we will visit it's site a few more times this week and of course at the end of the week we will have to end this lesson by eating worms!

Future science observations: frogs and their life cycle and snails.  We have observed butterflies for several years and will continue that but it will be nice to learn about other critters. Any suggestions are always appreciated!
