The Eggs...

...have hatched!
We had two right off the bat!  The first one came at 8:45 am and the second at 9:15!

When will this one hatch??

The first one out coming to take a peek to see what is happening!


Almost there...


This one arrived at 11:30...

...and so tired!

We had one more hatch during bus duty and that made 4!
Last night we had 3 hatch!  

I don't have a picture of our math journal entry for today--sorry!  Maybe tomorrow.
We drew a picture of the chicks in the incubator and the chicks in the box and wrote an incredible equation.  
3 + 4 = 7
That's right--we have 7 chicks ready to go to a farm...
any takers???

Book Publishing

I had three students finish their books so they could be published during Spring break.  Hailey was the first to finish her book and have it published.  I have searched many sites on the internet and is the most affordable site that I could find.  They do take a small profit from publishing, so I have kept the price as low as I could.  I have learned a lot while trying to publish this book and hopefully the others will go a lot smoother!  Not too bad for the first time I don't think.  As books are loaded, you can click on the icon to the right and view and purchase (if you would like).  I think this will also encourage others to get their books print ready.  It will be easy for a student to get their work published the first time because I do not have many guidelines.  As time goes on, more expectations will be set.  This will also encourage growth in their writing!  I am so proud of their writing!

Thing Shirts

Here they are...
We will change into them in the morning.

Thing shirts

I am still working on the thing shirts.  They have been dyed and look amazing.  I will be ironing on the decals tonight and I will post a pic tonight when the first one is complete.  I am tutoring until 5:30, so I will post a picture around 8 or 9.  Your child can wear it over a shirt tomorrow or change in the bathroom.  The shirts will go home with them.
