Baby chickens of course! And they’re coming to the Reed Library!
I admit, that at first, I was a little skeptical. The last time we (as in, my family) “shared” chickens with a school (pre-school days that is), on their weekend retreat to our house, one escaped in the car & then naturally almost out of the car. Onto the road.
From there, I also admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of the delightful odor these furry friends brought with them.
In saying that, they were actually no longer in the little, yellow, furry & way too cute stage. They were closer to full grown chicken wanting to escape their boxed confines.
So, in the name of moving forward with my chicken issues, when our much loved Ms Dudgeon so kindly offered to organize eggs for hatching, I decided confronting my fears was the best strategy.
As such, next week, we have some eggs arriving so that we can partake in the 21 day hatching process & enjoy the delightful arrival of some new literary friends.
To prepare ourselves, we’ll be reading about the same journey taken by Room 6 & their teacher Mrs Best in LA (see book images above).
Students will also have an opportunity to share what they learned about the chicken life-cycle & chickens or hens themselves after checking out their books in Library time -
Watch this space over the coming weeks for updates on how our furry friends!
Welcome to the on-line home of Reed Library! I'm so pleased you came to visit & hope you keep coming back to read my blog on our latest happenings, new books & our exciting digital citizenship program!
