Claire’s First Grade Class is starting a unit on baby animals. (In fact, they are in the process of incubating eggs and will be watching the chicks hatch next week!) Also? We just adopted a baby animal! How coincidental…
The teacher asked if we’d be willing to bring Henry in for a show-and-tell session for both First Grade Classes, and we did! (The office staff met him, too! It’s nearly impossible to be a baby hedgehog and not be popular.)
It went REALLY well. It went so well, in fact, that Henry wanted to explore a bit more than his wrangler would allow. I’m glad he was so calm around them! They got to see him all balled up like a cactus, and in his inquisitive mode. Good job, Lord Henry!
Looking back, I should have had the parents sign waivers. I heard at least one kid in each class say they wanted a hedgehog now.
…sorry ’bout that.
