Weather: Poems for All Seasons
Lee Bennett Hopkins
This is a book sent with the curriculum materials of K12 for 1st grade. We've been working our way through it. Here's one of our favorite poems.
Makes a lip-smacking lunch
On an ice-cold day!
You take seven snowflakes,
You break seven eggs,
And you stir it seven times
With your two hind legs.
Bake it in an igloo,
Throw it on a plate
And slice off a slice
With a rusty ice-skate.
(The illustration shows a bug stirring withn his two hind legs.)
Catchy-isn't it? Perfect for 1st/2nd grade humor.
So we turned it into a snowflake factory today. Fun stuff!
All of them did at least one but these were the kiddos that really enjoyed this. :-)
And, oh boy, we forgot to get a January picture. Blah! But we did and are having a few birthdays. This one was from this week.
A brand new 7 year old!
(I really do take pictures of the other kids on their birthdays also...but I have been so busy that organizing pictures gets put at the bottom of the to-do pile. This one was just from yesterday so it was on the card with the snowflakes still.)
