Trip to the Park, Swimming and More
Posted on October 11, 2019

Today some kids went swimming. But I went swimming and it was really fun and I went under water. It was really fun too. But it was really cold. [Eloise]

Today some kids went swimming. It was fun. I was ready to swim. I got in. The water was cold. [Emersyn]

I went to art and I loved my drawing and I went to music and it was fun. And I went to recess and that was fun. And I went to lunch and I was full and that was my day. I didn't go swimming. I did go to the gymnasium and I got to get a new spot at the Bronx table. And I had a soft lockdown. [Zev]

We went to Prospect Park to look at leaves. And we had fun. [Willa]

On Tuesday we had a field trip to Prospect Park to study trees and leaves. Andrew put letters: A, B, C, D, E under each tree. We had recess in the gym. We did not have Reading Buddies. [Amelia]

We went to the trip and we studied. [Elijah]

We took the subway to the park. On one subway all the seats were free. We got to sit down. And I had the best book ever. [James]

On Tuesday we went to Prospect Park. It was so fun. And we studied trees and it was kind of like a scavenger hunt. And there were letters of trees and the letters were fun to find. And there were letters on cardboard and it was so fun. [William]

This week we went to Prospect Park. We looked at trees. We ate lunch first. I was so hungry. I saw a pine tree. There was an A, B, C, D, E. We brought our backpacks with us. [Mila]

This week we went to Prospect Park. We took a train there. We saw different trees. They had letters. The letters were A, B, C, D, and E. And I sketched one. [Kaya]

Use the video to help remember the hand gestures that go with the poem!

Forest Walk
Kristine O’Connell George

I’m practicing my
      I-belong-here
      no-twig-snap
      no-leaf-rustle
      no-branch-crack
      see-all, know-all
      float-like-fog
      like-smoke
      pine-needle-soft
      forest walk. 
No one will know I’m coming.
No one will know when I’m gone.

   

Welcome Song!
Posted on October 2, 2019

Check out our morning song!

And here are the lyrics, so you can sing along:

--------

Welcome.
Glad to see you here.
You’re the very ones
I was thinking of.
(x2)

Leave all
your worries
outside of
the door.
And breathe deep
no hurry
together
once more.

So come right in.
Sing a song or two.
Give your throat a treat.
Warble on.
Let’s begin
like the birdies do.
Here’s a bucket to
keep your tunes.

You're
welcome.

   

Dance, the Book Fair, a Handshake, and the Time When Greta Fell Out of Her Chair!
Posted on September 27, 2019

We went to the Book Fair and I got two books and I got a bookmark and a pencil. The pencil was a rainbow and the bookmark had jelly beans on it. I did not know what to get so I got two books and I really like them. [Eloise]

We had an awesome time at Dance. And Donna did a 30 second dance. And we did a body dance. I'm done. [Vivian C]

This week we went to the Book Fair and I got a very cute dog book! [Ola Mae]

We went to the Book Fair and we learned about Tinies. [Ameer]

I showed Latfiyah the Rock Girl Friends handshake while we were walking to lunch. I was hungry. [Vivian S]

This week, Greta fell out of her chair. She is OK but it was a little funny. She tumbled backward in the middle of class and landed on her tush. Everybody laughed. The laughter echoed off the walls. Then she got back up and laughed, too. Then she kept teaching. Now I'm waiting for Andrew but the ukelele fell. [MD]

Me and Grandma got a book from the Book Fair. [Dylan]
