I hope you had a wonderful week! Did you enjoy all the rain we had? It got muddy around the farm, but I love the rain so I don't mind the mud.
You're teacher said you are still working on maps. Did you draw a map of your classroom, or your bedroom?
I thought you might like to see a map of our barn.
|This is what I see when I walk out to milk the goats. It's not always this messy looking, but we've been very busy the last few weeks and haven't had time to clean everything up.|
|A little closer. You can see the milk stand in the middle of the big, open door. We don't leave the big door open very often.|
|Look at the hay bales! They are so big! It takes the animals about one month to eat a whole bale. Two bales weighs about the same as a small car, that's heavy!|
|If I draw a map of the barn, this is what it looks like.|
If you look at last week's post you'll see what the barn looks like if you are looking down from an airplane.
A map is a drawing of the same thing.
|This chick was just born on Tuesday, 15 September 2015.|
We are lucky to have nice hens that let me pick up their chicks!
|Here is another one that was born on the same day.|
Two hens hatched out 5 chicks. One hen hatched out 2 chicks.
How many chicks did the other hen hatch out?
What other sounds do you hear?
The mama hen is teaching her chicks how to follow her, and how to find food and water to eat and drink.
|Here is one of the chicks that was born on the first day of school.|
How old is this chick?
This chick is a little more than 4 weeks old!
See you soon!
