For some reason I stuck this in my netflix DVD queue a while back. I think it may have been on a blog somewhere, and I thought it sounded really interesting. In any case I'm so glad I did! It was sitting in our mail pile on Monday morning, so
One of the other activities I had planned was a poem from Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein called the Band-aid. We read the poem and then I had a little band-aid activity. I even let them use real band-aids. The little boys liked the poem, and the band-aids. They were to draw a picture and finish the sentence "Band-aid on my_______."

April learned how to write a diamante poem this week also. This was good for her since we haven't done much with poetry, and she seems to want to run the other way when I even mention the word. She also had a good refresher on what exactly are verbs, adjectives, and nouns. Can you guess what her poem was about?

I am loving poetry more and more. I think we had a good start to our introduction to poetry this week. We also went to the library and I gave them the assignment to find another poetry book that looks interesting to them. We have a few to read this next week! I think we might have some more fun with poetry over the next few months.
