Okay, I love chicks just as much as the next person, but put a little food in them and watch out! It was soooo funny watching my kinders make sounds as the chickies p**ped on the floor while we were petting---I mean--observing them! My friend, Mrs. Burgess, had a duck in her classroom and she was kind enough to share with us. Thank-you so much--we loved the duck, "she" was simply adorable. I started thinking, wouldn't it be fun if we could hatch ducks next year! That would be a great surprise for my kinders because a few of them were telling me how they hatched eggs in preschool. I'll have to look into that! No matter how many times they get to see the chicks hatch, they (and me) are amazed to see the miracle of life! Now the hard part, choosing someone to take the new family home. We talked about keeping the chick family together and we decided that we would be happy for whoever was chosen. The notes are being collected, a name will be drawn from the hat tomorrow, and the chicks will be going to their new home on Friday, it has been fun!
Back in time---first two chicks to hatch.
My kinders were very curious about what the inside of the egg looked like and what was inside, so we had to check them out! I put a couple eggs on top of the incubator and we talked about what they were seeing and why it looked the way it did.
Our babies are so cute.
