Mr. Davo Devil Visits the Library
On Wednesday, we had a very special guest visit our Bulldog Library! Mr. Davo Devil visited with his friend, Miss Wyatt, from Tasmania, Australia. You can follow Miss Wyatt and her trip with Mr. Davo Devil on their blog.
In Tasmania, the island state south of Victoria, Australia, there are small animals called Tasmanian Devils, and Mr. Davo is a stuffed toy version of them! Miss Wyatt and Davo talked with Mrs. Flowers’ kindergarten class.
One of the kindergarten students was quite concerned that we were using the word, devil.
“Mrs. Hembree, Devil is a bad word!”
Luckily Mrs. Hembree had a book all about Tasmanian Devil animals, so the children understood that this version of devil, wasn’t the bad kind.
After we met with the kindergarten students, we took a quick tour around part of our school. Then we were back to the library to talk with Mrs. Adair’s 2/3 class.
We started off our discussion by looking at the world map to see exactly where Tasmania is located. To get to America, Miss Wyatt and Mr. Davo first flew to Melbourne, Australia. Then they got on a plane and flew for 14 hours to get to Los Angeles! Once they arrived in California, Miss Wyatt rented a car and started driving north. We are the second school they have visited on their trip.
Then we realized that here in America, we often add “Y” to the end of names or words.
What did you learn from Miss Wyatt and Mr. Davo?
What questions do you still have?
