In Samara's classroom this week they are hatching eggs, in keeping with the farmyard theme this term. Every morning the kids rush to school to see what has happened in the incubator overnight. By 8:45am everyone in the school knows exactly how many eggs have hatched and how many we are still waiting on.They are adorable, all fluffy sweetness, huddled together under their lamp. The children in the class are taking turns to name them. Luckily these chicks will not be burdened with their names too long, as they are given to families after the program is finished. Many of the names are quite dodgy.
I was amused by the chicks falling asleep standing up. Their little heads would sink slowly forward, until their beaks hit the ground. Even that wouldn't wake them up.
