Sharing "Chick" stories with the class.
Chick sensory box
After a week of observing our chicks we started to notice that their fluffy down feathers were starting to fall off and their more adult feathers were starting to grow in.
We said "good-bye" to our chicks last Tuesday. After school I delivered our feathery friends to "Farmer Rachael" who took them back to her farm in Chase. The children helped me write a letter to her.
Over our three trips to the skating arena, the children showed incredible improvement. Thanks to all the parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles who came and helped out!
It was an exciting morning. When the children arrived at school today, two of our chicks had 'arrived' and were waiting for us in the incubator.
Then we were lucky to watch our third chick hatch right in front of our eyes. What a great way to start the day!!
The children had fun keeping a close eye on our new classmates at the Chick Centre.
Three different coloured egg shells; three different coloured chicks.
Our chicks have been moved to our brooder and are feeling quite at home!
"Chickens Aren't The Only Ones"
We sorted animals into two categories after reading the book "Chickens Aren't The Only Ones". Were they 'born alive' or 'hatched from an egg'?
Our Cracking Eggs
We discussed the different parts of an egg and we compared different aspects of eggs. We looked at brown-shelled eggs compared to white-shelled eggs and wondered if the 'insides' were the same or different. Then we compared 'raw' eggs to 'cooked' eggs.
I'm Mrs. MacDonald. Welcome to a window into our kindergarten classroom. My goal of this blog is to give you an opportunity to see some of the things that we are doing at school. Enjoy!
