Donors Choose

The last few years I've heard a lot about donors choose and been a little jealous that it wasn't around when I was teaching. Well, now that I'm back to teaching I'm couldn't wait to try it out and I my project got funded in less than a week! Now I'm hooked and already have another project up. Check it out at

Swim lessons

The kids did swim lessons again this year. They do better and better each year.

This week we looked at toad tadpoles and researched them.

Petted chicks, which they thought were bald eagles.

Started our animal research projects. 

Learned to measure around the room with inches and centimeters.

Chicks and Eggs

We got a double yoke from one of our eggs. 

We have a lot of new chicks. 

Our eggs never hatched but while candling them you could see that they grew. 

We also have some butterflies that hatched. 

Our ladybugs also transformed. 

We have one hen that is broody so I put a couple of the chicks with her to see if she would adopt them, and she did!

Trees and Forts

We had a really bad storm with lots of wind, which took a few big branches off of the Bradford pear. So the neighbors helped us take it down. The neighborhood kids had already started a fort behind our house. So they were excited to see the tree coming down. Now they have two forts.
