This morning when I arrived at school I heard a baby chick chirping when I opened the classroom door. I was completely surprised because we weren’t even sure the eggs would hatch. The eggs are from the hens from the chickens in our school garden. The eggs were obviously well fertilized before they arrived at CLC 21 days ago. The excitement level was high when the children arrived at school, and heard the news that we had a new baby chick in our classroom. There is also another one on it’s way and it should probably arrive by tomorrow morning.
We celebrated the 100th Day of School today – yeah! Our center time activities centered around the 100th Day of School. We counted and ate 100 cheerios, colored 100 apples, counted 100 unfix cubes, wrote about what we would do if we had $100.00, and played several 100’s chart math activities. It was definitely an exciting and fun-filled morning.
Our garden time lesson today was learning about seeds. I read the children a wonderful book titled ” A Seed Is Sleepy” by Dianna Hutts Aston. It is a lovely book about the journey of a seed. After the story we went back to the classroom and dissected a lima bean. It was a very fun and interactive lesson.
