Friday morning Roo’s class had their Poetry Cafe. Each of the students had to memorize a poem and recite it. I was really impressed with how well they all did.
Roo chose a poem by Shel Silverstein from the Runny Babbit book.
The And-Baid Problem
Runny Babbit tut his cail,
So Goctor Doose came by.
He put an And-Baid on the cut,
And Runny cegan to bry.
Goc Doose said, “hey, that hidn’t durt--
I put it on sentle and goft.”
Said Runny, “I’m thinking ‘bout the time
Your’re going to pull it off.”
She gets so nervous beforehand, but then she gets up and just does a great job.
After we had snacks each table had the opportunity to write a haiku. I am not a poet…but haiku’s don’t even rhyme. What’s the deal with that? Here is the little ditty the group I was in came up with:
We all signed the bottom of the poster and I was so impressed with Ham’s ability to write his name…
totally backwards, from right to left. And you know I had to be impressed to actually share his real name. So be impressed with his writing abilities and then forget it. thanks…
Afterwards I dropped LaLa off at her class. This week she was the Star Student so I had to get a picture of her with her poster.
She is just so dang cute!
I sure love my sweet girlies!
