An Egg-Citing Opportunity for Junior Kindergarten Students at St. David

Pictured are St. David Junior Kindergarten Student, Tia Lefebvre and her chick, Abby.

June 4, 2013 - The St. David Catholic Elementary School junior kindergarten classroom has been filled with anticipation and excitement over the last couple of weeks. Lindsay Michel, the school's junior kindergarten teacher, partnered with Matt Peredy of Willow Lane Farms in Hanmer, Ontario to hatch chickens in the classroom.

Michel's aim was to provide a thrilling educational experience for her young inner city students and wanted them to experience the joy of life while learning to build empathy for other forms of life. The students watched eggs hatch and new born chicks emerging from their shells. In total, the junior kindergarten classroom welcomed 14 new additions - baby chicks- to their class.

The St. David junior kindergarten program meets the needs of young inquisitive learners by providing them with the opportunity to participate in hands on, child centred, inquiry based learning. It is through positive community partnerships and a relationship building focus that the school creates an environment that supports student engagement and real world learning experiences.

Special thanks and the school's appreciation go to Willow Lane Farms in Hanmer who graciously donated the incubator and eggs - Thank you Matt Peredy!
