We are reading…
Escape from Hat which we all love. It makes a great read-aloud if you are looking for one.
The kids and I are also enjoying Classic Poetry. There are some wonderful poems in this book, and we have been relishing looking up our favorites on You Tube to see if we can find a good reading of them.
Here is “The Destruction of Sennacherib” by Lord Byron.
And O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman
Decca and I have been studying onomatopoeia, and we found this short video on You Tube explaining it. It is geared toward younger kids, but he got a kick out of it.
Today is Fred Rogers birthday. I grew up on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, as did the kids. We all look back on the shows with nostalgia now. In honor of his birthday, here is a remix of the show called The Garden of Your Mind. Enjoy!
