    Poem of the week: "Chicken Soup with Rice" (August & September)

    Letters covered so far this year: These are our first two letters of the year!
    Focus: We will explore the letters "S" and "W" along with the sounds for both letters.
    We will begin working on establishing our rhythm for the week.


    Chicken Soup

    POEM OF THE WEEK

    August
    In August it will be so hot
    I will become a cooking pot
    Cooking soup of course-why not?
    Cooking once, cooking twice
    Cooking chicken soup with rice!
    –Maurice Sendak, from Chicken Soup with Rice

    September
    In September, for a while
    I will ride a crocodile
    Down the chicken soupy Nile
    Paddle once, paddle twice
    Paddle chicken soup with rice!
    –Maurice Sendak, from Chicken Soup with Rice

    Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
    Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
    Rapping at the window, crying through the lock,
    "Are the children all in bed, for now it's eight o'clock?"
