Spud's kindergarten doesn't have a class pet like a hamster or guinea pig. It has a pigeon.
Each day the assigned "Busy Bee" child [eg teacher helper] takes home the Pigeon Backpack. The pack includes Pigeon, of course, and 4 Pigeon books. [if you don't know these books ... you need to. They are great.] and a journal where each kid documents their time with the Pidge.
Spud was the Busy Bee on Friday so we are lucky enough to have it all weekend! Our first adventure with Pigeon follows:
1. Spud said yesterday that he wanted to go Venice. Off to the library to find some books about Venice.
2. Pigeon rides the rail down to the childrens' section.
3. Look Pigeon, they use boats instead of cars.
4. And look! There are pigeons in Venice too!
5. Off we go!
It's late now and Spud is off to sleep. Tomorrow we'll put this together in the journal along with his drawing of the two of them sleeping together and some words too. Can't wait.
