The Kinder Chicks Are Here!

Reminiscing about my travels years ago is fun, but coming back to the "now" of the kindergarden world is way more fun!

The last few weeks my son's class has been keeping track of the progress of fertilized chicken eggs in their chicken journal, singing chicken songs, reading chicken stories, creating chicken art, dancing chicken dances, watching silent chicken eggs incubate and counting the days until the big hatch day.  Well, yesterday upon arriving to school, the children were greeted by almost twenty little baby chicks that had hatched overnight!  And luckily, a few chicks were running late so the kids were able to watch the hatching of the last few throughout the day.  Soon, each student will adopt a little chick, then name and care for it through the end of the year.

I just couldn't resist sharing their amazing class at Monica Ros School and their sweet new mascots!


And for those interested, we even have a live chicken cam....

Cynthia - their home may look copper but alas it's plastic... but very cozy! : )

Lu - I think they incubated for 3 weeks... The kids haven't picked their chick yet but maybe next week!

Can they keep their chick if they want or does it live at the school?
