While the blog may be quieter than I would like, I am spending time at the computer (and trying to catch up around the house from being gone a lot this month).
One of the areas I am behind in is planning Jack’s 1st grade curriculum plan. I’m not so much behind as I am frozen with nervousness. I decided to tackle small chunks everyday. Today = poetry. The Ambleside Online Year 1 plan has Robert Lois Stevenson as the poet for the first term (12 weeks). They ever so helpfully included a link to an online version of Child’s Garden of Verses.
While I went ahead and requested the book from the library, in order to get a sense of the poet I took a look at the first poem. What I found made me laugh out loud. Seems a poet from over a hundred years ago put into rhyme what Jack has been telling me almost every night for the past many months – “It can’t be bed time, the sun is still up!” (“Bed in Summer“)
I think I am going to like Mr. Stevenson.
