next on the poetry agenda...

we're currently working on memorizing this sweet little poem. i'm looking forward to getting video of rachel saying all the little poems we'll be learning together over the course of the school year. children have the amazing ability to memorize so quickly, and memorization is one of those things that the more you do it the easier it becomes. i'm trying to get her memorization muscles toned and developed early (and it's not such a bad thing for me to work on, either)!

the little plant
by kate louise brown

in the heart of a seed
buried deep, so deep
a dear little plant
lay fast asleep.

"wake!" said the sunshine,
"and creep to the light!"
"wake!" said the voice
of the raindrops bright.

the little plant heard
and it rose to see
what a wonderful outside
world might be.
