Literacy With Heart Connection

As Zoe and I spent two hours cleaning her room the other night, we came across a scrap of paper with a poem scribbled on it. We both smiled as we remembered the day that we wrote a little poem together. It only took a couple minutes to write, but they were a couple minutes filled with not just learning, but heart connection.

We took turns writing a line. Here's the poem:

My mom and I wanted to write a poem,

About all the reasons we love our home.

I love the snacks, and I love our dog, Shack.

She loves the trees so tall,

And the peaceful green paint on the walls.

I love my brothers,

But I especially love my mother!

 

Maybe you'd like to try writing a collaborative poem with your family.

We would love to hear it!


I saw this at a consignment shop Monday. It made me smile. For some reason I love these desks, but they are not practical for my home. I thought it might make you smile too.
