In Our Classroom, It Was The Chicks...
... because our eggs didn't hatch, so we had to find some new baby chicks FAST!
We found some that were just 1 day old!
Our Classroom Barn:
I found this old rabbit hutch at a garage sale last summer and decided to clean it up and turn it into a barn for our farm unit.
The chicks love having a private side and a side where they can see what we are doing in our classroom.
Today, We Sat In A Circle...
... and we let the little chicks walk around inside of our circle. The children got to watch them drink water and eat chicken feed, run, and even try to fly!
They loved getting to pet the chicks and the chicks loved climbing up on their shoes.

First Day Certificates- Beautiful, colorful certificates that are sure to be a keepsake for your students.
First Day Comfort Note For Parents- Help your parents cope with leaving their child at school with this cute note.
Letter-Name Book- There is one page for each letter of the alphabet. As the class looks at the students' name cards, they find the day's focus letter. You write all of the names that include that letter on that letter page. Students love to find their name on the pages of this book.
Daily Journal- Students help you to complete the journal prompt for each day. At the end of the month, you send the journal home with each child so they may share all of the things they did during that month with their family. Great for home-school communication.
Boomer, Our Class Mascot Book- Each weekend a different student gets to take home our class stuffed animal and write about what they did together over the weekend. They include a photo too.
This $19 value is usually offered for $15, but it's on sale this week for $12. You can find it by clicking HERE or on the image.
