I hope you have already heard the big news! DG3 pipped this morning, then broke out of its egg a couple hours later. By the time I saw the eaglet, it was all fluffy and cute! The kids are so excited. But we have just begun. DG4 is up next, perhaps pipping as early as tonight. Hopefully soon we will see an attempt at feeding. The kids wrote in their journal about the pip. I had no idea that little whipper snapper would bust out of that shell so quickly or I would have had them wait, but we will have more to write about tomorrow! We are working to label and make a smaller picture in the bigger picture to show a close-up of a small area of a picture.
In math we continue to work with number bonds, specifically for seven. The children are doing a great job of remembering where the whole number is in the number bond, but some are having trouble following directions. Today they were to make the cube sticks match the number bond, but some of the kids did not do that. We will continue to work with number bonds as well as begin to play more games to practice addition.
We listened to a story today called Who's in the Shed. This was a fun story about a mystery animal in the shed. We never did guess it correctly. The group overwhelmingly thought the animal in the shed on the farm was a walrus, and they couldn't let go of that until they saw it was a bear instead.
We are so excited to start our leprechaun traps. Tomorrow we will be sketching our plans. The children will be working in small groups for this.
Have a nice evening!
