Spring is here and school is coming to a close. The kids are LOVING recess time outside because they can finally play together! Many are finding out that now they know how to swing, how to pull themselves up on a pull up bar or how to play an organized sport.
To count down the end of the school year we had a countdown chain. First we read the book Skippy Jon Jones in Mummy Trouble. Then we talked about what colors of fur Skippy had and then each student got to paint their own Skippy!
On another day our chain was to wear mustaches! I found packs of them at the dollar store, you got 7 mustaches for only $1. The kids LOVED these, though I have to admit that they were not so easy to get off! However, the kids didn't seem to mind and seeing those smiles was just perfect!
Then towards the middle of May we had baby chicks come to Wilbur! Mrs. Williams in room G-1 arranged it so that the University of Delaware agriculture department would bring an incubator. With the incubator the kids could see the life cycle of a baby chick! We had 11 baby chicks hatch! Each one was different and hatched at different times. The kids LOVED seeing each egg hatch.
As always check back soon to see what we have been up to!
