Shaping Up.

Roger is home on holiday, so today was a busy day out and about, and it wasn't until this evening that we found time to sit down and do some book work. Denver wrote a story, then followed up with a couple of pages of maths. She is working on shapes right now, and one activity called for her to trace shapes overlapping, to create her own new shape. I got some plastic shapes out for her to use. Kyla saw and instantly wanted to try it too.

Kyla's shapes, the scareton, the nowdy, and the maple.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
