News day.

Every Monday is Gareth's news day in school.

It used to be a day he could choose a random thing to bring in and talk about. Generally a toy, frequently a McDonald's one which made us look like we never ate a home cooked meal at home.

This term the news has become more structured. Last week they had to talk about a favourite recipe, this week bring in a poem about an animal or pet. We searched our bookshelves, we googled "kids animal poems" We didn't find anything Gareth liked.

We sat down for tea, we discussed it. Next thing you know Byron was making a poem up and everyone was chipping in their rhyming ideas. This was the result...

  1. Kids can be so funny! I have a little grandson, 3. Recently, his mommy put on a movie, Dr. Seuss' "Horton Hears a Who." Mason said "Oh! That's my favrit. Hooton the Hore." :)

    I really enjoyed your comment on "Bring the Rain." I'm sorry for the loss of your baby. The ministry available from the Lord through Angie Smith is such a wonderful blessing.

    Many years ago, my dear my friends from Sidney, BC were on a teaching exchange in New South Wales. (Yes, that's spelled correctly.) I am blogless in the Seattle Washington area.

    With God's love, Michal Ann
