Snow Poem

This week the children are taking a poem about snow. This ties in with our winter project that we will be doing and it also snowed last week end.
This is the poem that the children took:

Snowflakes spill from heaven's hand
Lovely and chaste like smooth white sand.
A veil of wonder laced in light
Falling Gently on a winters night.
Graceful beauty raining down

Giving magic to the lifeless ground.
Each snowflake like a falling star
Smiling beauty that's spun afar.
Till earth is dressed in a robe of white

Unspoken poem the hush of night.
~~By Linda A. Copp.~~

After listening to the poem a few times, the children decided that they wanted to write their own poem about snow. Here is the poem that six children between the age of 4-8yrs wrote.

The Snow Poem

One day it was snowing,
And the snow it was glowing.
The snow is on the duck,
And the duck is in the muck.
The snow is cold and freezing,
And all the children are sneezing.
The snow is falling on your head,
And now its time to go to bed.

out of interest are you registered as an independent school or are you just planning on keeping children until they are 6?
