Throwback Post: Desert Tortoise With Electricity and a Warm Coat on Jupiter


November 8 2013:

Thomas’ class just welcomed two new members last week … Two baby desert tortoises, Charger and Shelly! They are having a ball learning about reptiles hands on! Thomas told me this morning that they take them outside to the garden every day and Charger and Shelly LOVE it! They also have Beta fish in the classroom. The students are responsible for caring for classroom pets and take turns taking them home during holidays. I hope we get to welcome Charger and Shelly to our house during one of the breaks! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this about HDMS and Montessori in general. Warms my heart and floods it with LOVE! xoxo

So grateful that my kiddos are so well traveled! These two say they have been to all the planets in our solar system. Add that to them telling me they lived on Jupiter before coming here and I’ve got two rocking kids!
