The children were very excited when our new arrivals came this morning.
Having this experience exposes the children to a rich vocabulary as well as the opportunity to watch the hatching process in action.
We are already encountering new words and finding out their meaning. Today we learnt what an incubator was, the children are already beginning to use the language when they are talking.
There were lots of questions:
“Why is that one a different colour?”
“What is that long thing at the top?”
“What is the cage for?”
We are looking forward to finding out the answers.
