Whew!!! Today was a busy day! It was an exciting day in our classroom. The chicken eggs arrived and we put them in the incubator. We are now counting down 21 days for their arrival. They can hardly contain themselves. Today we read the story Chicken Chuck. It was about a chicken who ate a blue seed and sprouted a blue feather at the top of his head. He thought he was special and became quite bossy. We talked about the CH blend and listened for CH words in the story. We then pretended that we sprouted a blue feather and made a self portrait. They turned out super cute. After making our self portraits we wrote about why we were special. They turned out super cute. When my sister (who is an art teacher) came to drop off the chicken eggs she saw them and said they were pretty cool. She asked if they made them in art class...and they said, "NO!" If you can't tell...I am pretty impressed with myself...I have no artist talent what-so-ever. Here is how they turned out.
Tomorrow we will read Chicky, Chicky, Chook, Chook and do the following activities.
