Slugs….

Today we started the week with letter Ss.  I found a book called Some Smug Slug by Pamela Duncan Edwards  and based today’s lesson entirely on this book.  Normally I wouldn’t have ever thought of teaching about slugs, but this book is FULL of S words!  Every animal and adjective starts with the letter S.  So of course we then had to make a slug and a shiny trail behind him and learn a song to go along with it as well.  The kids really had fun talking about the slug and what a slug might feel like.  It really opened the conversation during Circle Time.

It’s A Slug

Sliding and gliding, slowly in the pond
Traveling on one foot, moving along
Scraping away at their food all day
Leaving a trail as they make their way.

Oh, it’s a slug!
It’s a slug!
Oh, it’s a slug!
It’s a slug!
A mollusk in the pond
Just trying to get along
Oh, it’s a slug!
It’s a slug!
