Tea on Tuesday week 3

What we read and ate:
I found some Yogi brand stress release lavender tea, and it is simply divine. I do not know about it  releasing  any stress but it is yummy!

We watched some great Animated versions of poems
"The Arrow and the Song" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. 

We worked on Alliterations this week, now if only I could figure out how to say that!
The Fennec fox flopped face first in the snow ~ Robin
The bear bounced the ball, the beetle bounced the broccoli ~ Duck
Ants ate eight avocados and apples~ Owl
Falcon still has not done this yet and he thinks I have forgotten about it!

The little boys wrote theirs out and we did copy work from poetry books all week.

The Author of Winter Bees , Joyce Sidman has some great resources for teachers on her site to work on poetry click here to view her site  When exploring her site we came across a video of a funny fox diving headfirst into the snow for a winter treat!. This inspired Robin to write the alliteration that she did.  Click here to watch the video on
