It’s Saturday which means time to celebrate to week. Thanks to Ruth Ayres Writes for a place to celebrate.

ONE
Our first week after spring is finished. I love spring break but it’s always good to get back into the grove.

TWO
Use of the library space, the family room of the school.

20140419-212701.jpg Family Library Night: Geology Rocks. The public librarian presented her love of rocks to families and she demonstrated how earthquakes work.

20140419-212830.jpgThe library was transformed to 1803-1804 when a re-enactor came to talk to fourth graders about Lewis and Clark. He brought cool artifacts. The flag here flew over Fort Clapsop. Note: fifteen Stars and Stripes. Plus this bleeding cup. Benjamin Rush showed William Clark how to use.

The friendly competition with a staff member and our Fitbits…comparing our walking during the day has increased my steps. Plus I discovered other staff members with them.

Thanks to Robyn for hosting Poetry Friday.

I am a shifty snake
I am as fast as a cheetah
I hiss, slither and bite
I live in a spooky habitat
My favorite food is frozen rats

I am a little fluffy hamster
I’m as fluffy as a cloud
I’m as fast as a cat
I’m like a little rat
My puffy nest is fluffiest

Cat
I am a cute cat
I am as sneaky as a fox
I sneak searching for mice
I stalk, run and pounce!
I am a Siamese cat

Happy Friday.
Happy Poetry

Thirty Days of Student Poetry Day 15

I am the sneaky cat.
I am as stealthy as a panther.
I leer at people on midnight haze.
People fear me on the 31st.
For I, am the black cat.

I am a colorful Peacock,
I’m as colorful as a rainbow,
I strut when I walk,
I live in tropical islands,
I only eat cacti fruit,
Hands off my cacti fruit.

I am a stand for dog
I am as mean as a bear
I skip like a 9 year old
Other dogs picked on me
I am a western dig dog

I am a stupid rat
I am as fat as a pig
I scamper around on my stubby legs
I can give you a disease
I am the fattest rat you have ever seen.
