Conversation Starters

Discuss with your child...

Take time to talk with your child about the life cycle of animals (fish, butterflies and birds). We are learning about the life cycle of the duck as we raise our duck eggs.

Reading In Action

Read with your child. Ask....

Which parts in the story could really happen? Which parts could not really happen?

Literacy Workstations

Writers Workshop

As Writers we can write letters to persuade others.

Reading Workshop

We can think about what the characters might say in the story.

Shared Reading

We can state details in the non-fiction stories we read.

We can create rhyming words with words we find in the story.

Math Workshop

We can find the missing addend to create a sum of ten.


As Botanists, we can state what plants need to survive.

As Ornithologists, we can state the life cycle of a duck (as we closely observe our duck eggs hoping they will hatch!).

Examining our empty egg

After "candling" our duck eggs, we found that this egg was not developing. We know that a duck will not be forming inside this egg, so we decided to crack it open to investigate the inside.
