Good morning everyone,

Our theme today for home-school learning is summer.

Here are some activities to choose from:

Read the following poems about summer (they may also give you some ideas for your own poems):

Summer Days

I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot.

To lie out in the sun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To play and have some fun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To hit a ball and run.

Oh, I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot

Now summer has begun.

 Anne English

 

Summer Song

 By the sand between my toes,

By the waves behind my ears,

By the sunburn on my nose,

By the little salty tears

That make rainbows in the sun

When I squeeze my eyes and run,

By the way the seagulls screech,

Guess where I am? At the ……!

By the way the children shout

Guess what happened? School is ……!

By the way I sing this song

Guess if summer lasts too long:

You must answer Right or ……!

 John Ciardi

Good luck!
