The Kindergarten children were very excited to welcome our special visitors, the ducklings, to our classrooms this week. On Monday, the eggs arrived in the incubator and we all waited in anticipation for the day when they would finally hatch. Eventually, little cracks began to appear on the surface of the eggs and the ducklings used all their strength to break open the shell. When the ducklings were strong enough, we enjoyed teaching them to eat and drink and, finally, swim. They loved splashing around and chasing each other in the water! Each child had the opportunity to gently hold a duckling and describe how it felt using their senses. We have loved caring for our visitors and look forward to seeing what else they get up to this week!
