We thought about poems today and how they are the same and different from stories. We thought of topics for poems we could write, and what would not make a good poem for us to write. We found out that we could write an awesome poem about marshmallows, but we could not even get started on writing a poem about automatic transmissions. So we know, choosing a topic is important. We read a beautiful book called Daniel Finds a Poem, by Micha Archer. This book is about a little boy who loves nature. He goes to the park each day and is looking forward to a Poetry Night they are going to have at the park. But Daniel does not know what poetry is, so he asks different creatures in the park. He soon finds out that poetry is all around him.
We worked more with story problems today. We thought about the different ways we can solve story problems.
We continue to check-in on the eaglets, Freedom and Liberty. They are getting so big and can do so much now. They are self-feeding, beginning to sleep standing up for short periods of time, playing with branches, and stretching the wings. Watch for hovering and branching in the next few weeks!

Enjoy this gorgeous day!
