The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
Later in the day we were discussing poetry and how many syllables are in different words. To practice, he wanted to play a game to see who could think of the word with the most syllables while we clapped out the beat. Please tell me you know what I pulled out of my pocket! Yes, the classic, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!" And he had never heard of it!! Well say no more. It took me two seconds to pull up a few YouTube clips of Mary Poppins and we just had ourselves a delightful time singing along, smiling from ear to ear. So I thought I'd take this opportunity to remind you to make sure your children, students, nieces or nephews get to experience some of the simple joys of our childhoods. Move over Toy Story! Today "A Spoonful of Sugar" definitely helped the homeschooling go down! Here are a few clips to accompany you and your family's sing-a-long at home tonight:
Also, check out the giveaway being hosted over at Party Box Design for a blog design package by the adorable and brand new, 3 Cupcakes Blog Design! I am definitely in the market for a super cute new and personalized blog design. Even if you don't need one, you can gift the free blog design to someone else up to a year after! Sweet! Thanks PBD.
