Poem to Parents

A Child’s Plea

Today I did my math and language, practical life too.
I used my eyes, my ears and hands, my senses the whole day through.
I added and subtracted, learned patience throughout the day,
I used magnets, blocks, several puzzles
And I worked with the memory tray.
I learned how to mix colors,
I learned how to weigh.
So mom and dad, please don’t say-

ANYTHING IN YOUR FILE TODAY?

You see, I’m sharing as I play,
Learning self discipline throughout my day,
I’m learning to listen and speak clearly when I talk
To wait my turn and when inside to walk,
To put my words into phrase,
To balance along the Red Rod maze
To find my name and write it down,
To do it with a smile, not a frown,
To put my pasting brush away.
So mom and dad please don’t say-

WHAT NOTHING IN YOUR FILE TODAY?

I learned about a snail,
I learned about a worm,
I learned about flags and maps,
And how to take my turn,
I helped a friend when he was stuck,
I learned that water runs off a duck,
I looked at words from left to right
Agreed to differ, not to fight,
Today I sang the Continent Song,
And I learned the difference between right and wrong,
So mom and dad please don’t say-

DID YOU ONLY PLAY TODAY

Yes, I played the whole day through,
I played to learn the things to do,
Encounter a problem, find a clue and work it out for myself, I do
My teachers set the scene, and stay nearby,
They help me succeed and teach me how to try,
They are there to pose the problems, and to help me think,
They help me keep afloat and never let me sink,
So please don’t get discouraged and frustrated with me,
I try my best and I’m learning each day,
So mom and dad, please don’t say-

HAVEN’T YOU DONE ANYTHING TODAY?
