    We have a pip in an egg from Frank, it's a fairly large darker brown egg. The janitor just called me because he was cleaning my room and looked through the glass in the bator, he called to tell me one egg has a hole in it! How much you want to bet he camps in my class tonight!

    I am a teacher and every time we hatch eggs in the science lab it seems to be the "gathering place" for students sneaking around K-8. They love to see what is happening with the "chicks." The older kids try to sneak in and out to check it out without being caught because some of them think it is really "uncool" to act too excited about something so "simple." Several teachers go up at night to "check them out." There is something about hatching eggs that seems to attract everyone.[​IMG][​IMG]:weee:weee

    Hey Writer of Words, I didn't know that you were doing a classroom incubation project. You never mentioned it when you were helping me out so much.
    Congratulations!

    Pictures?

    I'm so excited myself I can hardly wait to get to school tomorrow! I'm sure by the time I get there my classroom will be full of people. Josie I'm sorry you didn't see my posts on it I feel awful! I felt I was overdoing it so I've tried to back off some from posting too much.
    The playhouse is in the hands of the high school shop kids, I went back and bought one for myself though so that one we will start working on this weekend!

    No need to feel bad, it was just a happy surprise for me. [​IMG]
    I think I'll look for your other posts though.
    I think the fact that I missed them just goes to show that checking this forum three times a day is not enough! [​IMG]

    I have so many teachers who want to get involved now it's not even funny! After I took the little turken/fuzzy thing to school last week everyone wants to do it.
