Hot air balloons,
So colorful floating in the sky.
The bees just finishing their honey.
It smells delicious.
It makes me wonder.
As hose water squirts into the sky,
The water sparkles in the sunlight.
Once we go inside,
Our clothes are soaked.
The smell of fresh grass makes me happy.
When the flowers bloom,
I admire them.
Birds communicate and chatter.
Hatching eggs and the crickle crackle of campfires,
The taste of warm marshmallows,
Reading and watching birds outside,
As they fly and chase each other in the sky,
Are all the wonders of summer.
But now the smell of smoke makes me wonder,
Fall is not here, but it is near.
At the Tunbridge Fair I was really interested in the old-fashioned organ. The organ had knobs. If you press a knob when you press a key, the knob that you press will press another key. You had to pump the organ to make sound. Every knob presents a key. If you press all of the knobs, you play all of the notes.
I got to play the pump organ myself, and I pumped it. You had to press your feet down on two little boxes. I played, “How Great Thou Art.” The music man looked like Abe Lincoln. He told me how it worked, and he said, “Good job!”
I still had questions as I left, and I hope to go back again someday!
I hope that this classroom will be kind and caring. I want to learn better long division. I want to be a teacher or a bus driver or a dentist. I hope we get to go to Crazy 8s Club!
It’s okay to ski.
It’s okay to talk to your stuffies.
It’s okay to hunt animals.
It’s okay to make candles.
It’s okay to watch someone in the hospital.
It’s okay to spin on chairs.
