We worked with words with silent e today. We read this poem by Eve Merriam called How to Eat a Poem then looked for words with silent e.
How To Eat A Poem
Don't be polite.
Pick it up and eat the juice that may run down your chin.
It is ready and ripe now whenever you are.
You do not need a knife or fork or spoon
or plate or napkin or tablecloth
For there is no core
to throw away.
We read a story called The Tree Lady by H. Joseph Hopkins. This story is about Katharine Olivia Sessions who brought trees to San Diego. Ask me why there were no trees in San Diego when Kate moved there.
Another eaglet update! The eaglets branched this week, which means they went up on one of the branches instead of staying in the nest. The mother eagle had dinner up there which maybe coaxed the eaglets up there. They are on the railings of the nest often. Every time we see the eaglets spread their wings, we are amazed. They are enormous, and the eaglets are getting used to them. They are flapping them and soon will be hovering. Check them out if you haven't! dceaglecam.eagles.org
Have a nice weekend!
