We began putting together the foundation of our barn! We looked at photos of the farm and reviewed what we would find in the country. We looked at the broken down boxes together and worked in teams to paint the barn! The students painted vigorously!

Good news! I was stressing about this all week--but I was able to get chick eggs to hatch in our classroom! :D One of the farmers at Indian Ladder Farms is kindly offering some chick eggs for our class to incubate, hatch and take care of for awhile. I'll be getting the eggs on Thursday! I can't wait for the class to experience this aspect of farm life!
Tomorrow, we'll be adding details by creating vegetation and animals to our dramatic play center and soon to be "farm." I wonder what the children will decide to add!
Also, I forgot to write on my blog last night but the children received their homework packets today because the copy machine was broken yesterday.
