I've had a few problems posting this weeks with deleted posts even after multiple tries. However, I have no worries that you didn't hear an earful yesterday about what happened with the eagles we have been watching. DC4 hatched yesterday, and this morning early DC5 had a pip in the shell. It takes 12 -48 hours usually for the eaglet to hatch, but it hatched early this afternoon. We try and check in on them several times during the day. Yesterday we saw a lot! DC4 was trying to hold its head up and feed, and was finally successful after the kids left. DC4 is pretty spunky and was really trying to keep its head up and figure out what to do with those wings and feet. We saw him do a backward somersault, which probably was the highlight of the day for the kids! They wrote about what they saw yesterday, and I'll send those home tomorrow so you can see. This class is very sweet and tells the eagles they love them. I've also overheard several of them saying "I wish my mom could see this!" So I hope you get the chance to check these amazing creatures out. The eaglets will be in the nest for 12 - 13 weeks so we have a lot of great observing we can be doing from now until the end of the year.

In math, we have been working to write numbers to 120. We also working with the hundreds chart to learn more about the relationship between numbers. We are working on adding and subtracting ten and twenty to numbers, and adding and subtracting one and two to numbers. The children are having fun doing number factories where they start with a number and take it through several operations before putting it in a box.
We are talking about how humans are alike and different. We are writing about ourselves and sharing what makes us each special.
Have a nice evening!
