If your child comes home with no homework, remember this poem.
Today I did Math and Science,
I toasted bread.
I halved and quartered.
I counted, measured, used my eyes, and ears and head.
I added and subtracted on the way,
I used a magnet, blocks, and memory tray.
I learned about a rainbow and how to weigh.
So please don’t say, anything in your bag today?
You see I’m sharing as I play.
I learned to listen and speak clearly when I talk,
To wait my turn, and when inside to walk.
To put my thoughts into a phrase,
To guide a crayon through a maze.
To find my name and write it down,
To do it with a smile and not a frown
To put my painting brush away
So please don’t say, What, Nothing in your bag today?
I’ve learned about a snail and a worm,
Remembering how to take my turn.
I helped a friend when he was stuck
Learned that water rolls off a duck
I looked at words from left to right,
Agreed to differ not to fight.
So please don’t say…
Did you only play today?
