I spent the full day with the kids in the classes, working on new verses to the Cat Came Back, and We Gave Names to the Animals, and more (yes, more) verses to Down By the Bay. The important thing is the interaction.
I had the quietest lunch period today – the third grade was away for a field trip, but I was thoughly entertained by the lunchroom ladies. As I was eating in silence (eerie) one of the ladies started singing the Cat Came Back. Seems her daughter drove her crazy with it a long time ago. The song runs deep…. I then told her that we had just written a verse about the cat visiting their lunch room. Synchronicity.I’ll post the words shortly.
A good, creative day….
