This week we are going to use draw.to it is an internet version of paint. The only difference is is that when you are done you can click share and it will give you a link to share your drawing with others using other social networking sites. I have mine linked below.

New Chicken Pictures

It is nearing the end of another school year! I thought I would post some pictures of the chickens. These will be the last ones. I will also post some pictures from the hatch! Look at how much they have changed in a little over a month! I really enjoyed doing this project with each of you!

This week our Second Graders are going to learn how to use a program that inserts their faces into a video. There are TONS of websites for digital camera fun but I decided that this one was probably the best.


Hero Video

5th graders will be learning how to jazz up their power points using an online program called rocket slide


Below I have also posted recent pictures of the chicks. We are about to add the additional running room to their pen because they are getting so big. Some of the students are wanting me to bring one back up to school but since they are getting so big and trying to fly I do not think that is a great idea. I will keep posting pictures from time to time to keep the kids updated.

I am experiencing some problems getting the other 2 to upload so I will try again tomorrow!

Week of April 26

This week is going to be a very long but it will be another history making week at HES because our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are going to ROCK THE TAKS! I just know all of their hard work is going to pay off and end in another Exemplary Rating for our school! Kindergarten is going to be using Microsoft Paint to draw different kinds of weather. First grade is going to create their own animals using Switch-Zoo. I have updated pictures of our baby chicks that our class hatched below

Incubation

We have had a busy couple of weeks with our 5th Graders Rocking the TAKS test and going to the track to prepare for our Field Day on May 7th. On Monday morning I walked in my classroom to find 3 baby chicks had hatched! On Tuesday imagine my surprise to find 10 had hatched before I made it into the classroom that day, later that day 2 more hatched. Wednesday I walked in to find 3 had hatched, and just when I thought they were done I came in Thursday morning to find one more little chick! As of today I think the eggs are done hatching we had 19 out of 23 eggs hatch!

Here are some pictures and video of our chicks!

Day 6 of Incubation

I tried candling this morning and I tried to take a picture of it since we are in Day 6 of incubation, but I haven't quite been able to get it to look how I want it to. So I found this picture using Google Images.

This is what the inside of our eggs at day 6 of incubation should look like. I found the image on the backyard chickens website.
