On Friday we talked about Terry Fox and why he is a Canadian hero. We talked about how Terry did something that was very hard and helped other people and we remember him because of what he accomplished. Because of Terry Fox we walk or run every September to raise awareness and money to help find a cure for Cancer. We will discuss other heroes during September. I encourage you to talk with your child about who are your heroes are and why.
On Friday we had a Primary Store. We sold under 100 items in the Primary Store. There was pet rocks,cupcakes, dreamcatchers, stress pencils, bracelets, insects, snack bags, wishing stars, and owl stickers. We are donating the money to Kids In Motion playcentre. We had made $142.65 dollars. We had five classes doing the Primary Store, Ms Lutz, Mrs Bono, Ms Janveau, Ms Woodford. We thank all the classes that did the Primary Store.
Yesterday we cracked opened the eggs. There were two chicks that developed in the egg but did not live. One egg was rotten and smelled. Two eggs were just yolks. One egg started to grow but did not grow that much. Seven eggs did not hatch.
The past the few days the chicks started growing feathers. We had to put them in a cage. We were starting to get mad at the chicks because they were loud. They eat a lot. They were starting to get stinky. They are so cute. Our class loves them. They eat chick starter.The chicks names are Kyla Jr, Popcorn, Pom Pom, Hei Hei, and Shadow.
We have chickens in our class.We have Columbia Rock ,Barred Rock, Buff Orpington and Black Australorp. So far Three Chickens have hatched. One is trying to hatch. I have had three chickens so far. We have seen the egg tooth in the eggs that have hatched. We have seen the chicks cuddle and walk. They make peeping sounds. They look like they are play fighting some times.
Thank you to Mr. Berry (the custodian) for making us a cage for our chicks! We have a dozen chicken eggs in an incubator in our class. There is a mixture of Columbia Rock, Barred Rock, Black Australorp and Buff Orpington eggs. They are due to hatch on April 24, 21 days after we put them in the incubator. We are hoping we will have a couple hatch. Stay tune for updates.
