Storytime with Baby Chicks: Animal Science and Read-a-Loud (Self-paced)

Storytime and a lesson on hatching chickens with live footage and real baby chicks. (Ages 3-7)

Course Summary


 Come cuddle up and read with us as we meet some brand new baby chicks!  This adorable course brings your learner up close to meet our newly hatched silkie chickens.  We read-a-loud a story together called Curious Little Chicks, a tale full of rhymes and counting fun.  After "tucking in" the chicks to bed, we then here the tale of how the eggs were incubated, and hatched at home.  Together we learn the science of how chicks develop from egg to hatch, with real footage from the 21 day process.  Great for early literacy, beginner homesteading and all curious little animal lovers!

Course Curriculum

Stacy Forestieri

I am a homeschool mom of 3 adventurous young boys. We enjoy the great outdoors and living for Jesus. You will most often find us wandering the nearby river trail, or hiking to local waterfalls, searching for creatures and other wonders of creation. We reside in a small town in southern Ontario, Canada, along with our 3 ducks, 2 bunnies and 4 silkie chickens (who sometimes make live appearances in my classes). We love taking learning outdoors, or at least bringing natural elements into practical hands-on learning.

With our name Forestieri, we launched Forest Kids, which offers nature-based programs, events and resources for kids and their families. Through that I teach preschool in my home daycare and early elementary ages in my nature clubs and family events. At my church I helped develop and teach their video courses which are used in the classroom and online.

I have held business and admin positions in both the corporate and ministry environments. I have led mission teams to several countries including Panama, Guyana and Costa Rica. One of my dream jobs was serving as a regional manager for an international ministry that shared the love of Jesus with children around the world. Currently my main ministry is home with my family, but my heart to share the love and light of Jesus in everything I do.
