Right after nap time the children were so eager to see the now famous squid. As I laid it on the table they all looked at me with a strange smile and said, “It smells stinky!” I explained to them that seafood sometimes has a different smell to it. I showed them all the different parts of the squid and encouraged them to get magnifying glasses to look at it. I am so glad that I was able to share a new experience with all my children. As teachers we do have to take advantage of moments like this. You will never know when it will arise again.
