My Students

I have a classroom of twenty-one lively little four and five year olds with a wide range of abilities! Their imaginations are as big as their hearts! They love to learn, play and experience new things.

We are a Title I school in a rural community with our percentage of free and reduced lunch at 70%, so many of my students have limited opportunities for new learning experiences.

Although, this does not stop them from having curious minds and coming to school everyday eager to learn. They enjoy hands on experiences and get ecstatic about new learning opportunities!

My Project

Hatching eggs in the classroom is an event that most children do not get to experience. The Ovascope will give my students the opportunity to observe the egg at every developmental stage of the cycle. The incubator will allow the students to witness the mini miracle of hatching; and the brooder will imitate how the hen keeps the chicks warm as the students care for the babies in our very own classroom.

Teaching the Life Cycle of a Chick is an EGG-cellent hands on activity that creates some of the most exciting days in the Pre-K classroom.

My students will learn to make observations and predictions as well as the procedures to care for the chicks. Having chicks in the classroom will help build a sense of community as well as encouraging responsibility.
