Poem of the week

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

————- Langston Hughes

Poem of the week

Perhaps

All day long the penguins play

in the cold Antarctic sea-

diving

splashing

leaping

dashing

in slippery, flippery glee.

While other birds chase blue-sky dreams

the sea to penguins sings-

perhaps they aren’t birds at all

but fish with feet and wings.

————– Maxwell Higgins

What was happening?

This week our focus was the letter “O”. “O” is for “owl” which we did for our craft. We traced, colored, & sang songs that represented the letter “O”. For reading comprehension, we started “Sneezy The Snowman” book by Maureen Wright and Stephen Gilpin. We tried our best to answer, “What book did we read?” and ” Who is the character in the story?”. From the Core learning series, we started our core word “Go”. Our book for this week from this series is “Go! Go! Go!”. We practiced counting numbers 1-10 for math comprehension. On Monday, we had a half day. On Thursday, we had a snow day, while on Friday, we had so much fun visiting Ann Arbor hands-on museum. Also, we celebrated one of our friends’ birthday. Happy Birthday, Youssef 🙂

Please, check my blog for today’s field trip to the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum.

Poem of the week

How to Talk to your Snowman

Use words that are pleasing

Like: freezing

And snow,

Iceberg and igloo

And blizzard and blow,

Try: Arctic, Antarctic,

Say: shiver and shake,

But whatever you never say,

Never say: bake.

———— Beverly McLoughland.

Poem of the week

A Secret

Do you know why the pine trees

Stand so straight and tall,

Spread their branches thick and fine,

And never stoop at all?

It really is a secret

Which the North Wind told to me:

Every pine tree hopes some day

To be a Christmas tree.

————– Laura Alice Boyd
