The other day I Sliced about having frogs in my TV room. (You may read that Slice here.) To be honest, at the time they were just wood frog eggs. But this morning something magical happened — they began to hatch! Now it would be more accurate to say, “I’ve got tadpoles in my TV room!”
I’ve been watching over these little guys since I brought them home from our school vernal pool on Tuesday. (Note: They were harvested by a licensed conservation biologist. I’m just head-starting them at home instead of my classroom. Click here to meet the amazing Emilie and see her knee-deep in the vernal pool searching for an egg mass for me.) Each morning when I come downstairs, I turn on the light and take a peek in the tank. Nothing Wednesday. Nothing Thursday. Nothing Friday. BOOM! They are starting to venture out of their protective coating.
Something to look forward to each morning. We don’t have a dog, so these little guys will bring me some life-goes-on joy every day, and I’ll be sharing their progress with our Kindergarteners online with my Tad Cam.
Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. Many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March. How are there only 3 days left?

You have frogs. I have wood duck chicks! I’m so excited. I also have a monarch caterpillar. I love raising things that can’t talk. Nature is amazing.
I’m anxiously awaiting updates just like your kindergartners. Thanks!
I want to be a kindergartner in your class! And “Tad Cam?” How fun.
How exciting to watch them evolve. You students will anxiously tune in daily to check their pregross, as will I! 🙂
I love it! Maybe share a video on your blog, please?
How fun, and I am so glad you are keeping us updated! 🙂
I’m certain your Kinders will adore the Tad Cam. How exciting for you and for them!
