Two wonderful things happened last Wednesday.
You started First Grade, and we had two little chicks born.
|Can you see them?|
Do they look like their mother?
Do they look like each other?
|These small chickens are growing up.|
They were born 19 July 2015.
They look like small chickens, not like fuzzy chicks.
How many weeks old are they?
Did you count the weeks on a calendar? If you counted 5 weeks and 5 days, you are right!
|I thought you might like to see where most of the farm animals live. Next week I'll show you a map of our barn so you can see what it looks like inside.|
Here are a few of the other animals that live on our farm.
|This is Curly. Why do you think we named him Curly?|
He is a buck, a boy goat.
There is another buck in the background, his name is Zeek.
|These ducks live on our farm, too. They are not our ducks, they belong to the neighbor, but they come across the road to our farm every morning for breakfast.|
They love to eat the chicken's food, and the turkey's food, so I have to chase them home every day.
|Here is another animal that lives on our farm.|
He doesn't live in the barn.
His name is Miles.
Miles and Matt are best friends. When Matt is gone to work, Miles sits by the back door waiting for him to come home.
I hope you enjoyed this short visit! I hope you come back every Friday to see what is happening on the farm.
You can ask me questions, and I'll answer them. Your teacher will bring me your questions, and if your handwriting is neat enough that I can read it, then I will post your question here and answer it for everyone to see.
I hope you visit again next Friday! Have a great week!
