We had a great day today! We started the day with PARRC testing and all of the kids worked really really hard! I was very proud of them and know they will do just as well tomorrow!
After that we had a visit from our 4H representative to check on our baby chicks. She candled each egg so that we could see if they were developing into chicks. Out of our 12 eggs we could see that 10 of them were on their way to hatching! We know that they won’t all hatch, but we are hoping for about half! As we looked at the eggs we could actually see the chick moving inside! It was amazing!
As our final Right to Read Week activity, Christine Petrell Kallevig, an award winning author, will visit Heritage Elementary School. Christine Petrell Kallevig is a storigami storyteller. We are really looking forward to the assembly on Friday afternoon because it will combine two things we love — stories and origami.
