Goodbye and Good Luck!

Yesterday we wished our latest student teacher Miss Sinkhorn goodbye and good luck. It was her last day with us in our classroom and we are so sad to see her go. She was such a great addition to our classroom and we loved learning with her. On Saturday she will graduate from EKU and hopefully very soon she will have a classroom of her own. All of us in room 201 agree that she is a fantastic teacher and will be great in her own classroom. We are so excited for her! Here are some pictures of our afternoon of wishing her well.

We made her a memory book with letters and pictures.

We think she liked it!

One last group shot.

Of course we had treats!

We are so sad to see her go.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Derby and Mother's Day weekend!!
Please remember we are still testing next week and we need to be ON TIME and WELL RESTED each day! These kids are doing a great and we want to continue to do great things.

Special Scavenger Hunt.

This morning we went on a special scavenger hunt!
Check out the pictures to understand more.

We searched under our chairs for clue #1.


Finding clue #2.


On the hunt for clue #3.

We called in some help!


The hiding spot!

It was found!


She found it!

(Should read Be careful AND look- whoops!)

The hiding spot.

Looking hard for the book and the LAST clue.

The mystery book!

Yes, you read that correctly!
I am expecting TWINS!! I am beginning to show and had to share the news with them! It was so much fun.
After the final clue we had TWINKIES for everyone. They had LOTS of name suggestions!! Good ones like Romeo and Juliet! It was a fun way to begin our week and I had to share the events with you.

We read the book while we ate our Twinkies.

As you can see, I was pretty excited to share the news with them.

We would like to introduce you to Rosebud & Fudge. The cutest little baby chicks you ever did see.

We have had 3 chicken eggs in an incubator in our classroom since the first of the month. We became interested in chicks on our Ag Day field trip where we learned all about eggs and how they hatch. Our interest grew as we read the book Love, Ruby Lavender. In this story the main character raises chickens and they lay eggs. I guess you can say we are a little chicken crazed in here.

So to feed our chicken craze we contacted the 4H Extension Office and they supplied us with everything we needed to hatch our own! We fell in love with our eggs from day one. We have been watching them, watering them and hoping they would hatch! On Monday night when we left, the center egg had cracked and we saw a tiny chick trying to work his way out! On Tuesday morning when we arrived at school we had 2 baby chicks! We were an excited bunch.

On Tuesday we moved the hatched chicks to a new home in a large tote. We made it as comfy and as toasty as possible for them. We gave them food, water and soft bedding to snuggle in and we all fell in love! They fluffed up right before our eyes.  We had a great name debate but after much discussion we agreed to name the yellow one ROSEBUD after one of the chicks in our book. We named the little brown one FUDGE.
We have all loved on them, and will be sad to see them go on Friday. We are still holding out hope for our one lone egg  hoping to add a third chick to our crew.

Here are some pictures of our new arrivals!

Our eggs when the kids left on Monday.

Their cozy home for the week.



We all got to hold the chicks.

We love petting the chicks!

They can get a little wild!
