I’m back at school today – after being sick for a week now – and I had an amazing time – because i really like my teacher. She gave me a sand dollar to bring home and mama said that i learned more than she did when she was my age. School was quite different for mama when she was in Singapore – they don’t have all these things – to show their students back during mama’s time – so mama is really amused whenever i come back with new things to show her. I even get riddles to bring home – to show mama – so even though mama was looking for cheap prescription glasses online – she stopped to see my sand dollar.
What is a sand dollar? Sand dollar is a name used for many species of flattened, burrowing sea urchins found in the ocean water. It can also be found in temperate and tropical zones. Sand dollar is like a fossil washed up on beaches. So if you see something like the above picture or the one i got back from school – you know it is a sand dollar.
