We were so excited to come in to school this morning and see 5 little baby chicks in the incubator! We’ve been checking on them every day and they finally hatched! They are so cute and small. We used one finger to gently touch their feathers – they’re soft too. We also saw one of the shells that they hatched out of. We watched them in their bin for a little while and saw that they were cuddled together to stay warm and making little chirping sounds.

Later on we visited them again and found one more chick that just hatched! It was fresh out of its shell so we left it there to get dry and warm.

 

Back in our classroom we did some yoga poses and stretches, pretending to be chicks.

   

What an exciting thing to happen in school! We can’t wait to see how they change over the next few days!
