My boys came with me to school this morning and they sat and watched the pip.
This is what we saw from early morning until lunch time. There was NO change ALL morning.
During the end of my math lesson I spotted some movement in the egg. I told the kids to put everything away and this is what we saw. We watched for 15 minutes. I had my document camera on the incubator so we got to watch it all on the smart board.
This little Chicky hatched RIGHT before we had to go to specialist! We were EXCITED!!!
We came back to the room and filled out a birth announcement and filled out a graphic organizer and then wrote about the chicks.
We also sang "Happy Birthday to the chick and had a birthday treat!
It was a great day!!! :) Some of my first graders said that this was their best day in first grade.
After school my boys and hubby helped me decorate our first grade cluster for our upcoming SPAC (academic night). We decorated it in a farm scene because we will have our chicks on display. Each class chose an animal from my TLC Lessons book that I bought. My boys and hubby helped make the barn and hang everything. This is what our cluster looks like now...
It turned out really cute!!
We have been doing lots of things from my Chicks Unit that can be found here...Life cycles-Chicks-Math-and-Literacy-Unit-2-Common-Core-Aligned and Chicks-Math-and-Literacy-Centers.
My Doc Camera is set up on the incubator. We can watch it on our Smart Board.
I think that's about it for tonight! Hope you are having a great week!
