On a walk around our neighborhood today, Annabelle and Gavin discovered a turtle. I loved how curious they both became about the turtle. Annabelle asked me things like:

Where does he live?
Where’s his mommy?
What does he eat?

She’s already a great question asker! And I encourage her questions because it’s at the heart of being an engaged learner and community member.

What a great learning moment we had right there in the street. I wonder how we can translate spontaneous learning moments like these into “school.”
