Rebus rhymes and more “I Spy”


We’ve had a lot of fun singing rebus rhymes with EC and KG classes this week.  Rhymes such as “5 Little Ducks”, “BINGO”, “The Ants Go Marching” and many more can be found on the Enchanted Learning website.

Also, here are a two more examples of the “I spy in the library” poems that Grades 1-3 created:

I spy in the library by 3McA:

I spy a book with a fat polar bear, lions and books on shelves everywhere

Two boys with very cool hair

Seven puppets over there, trying to share a book  with a bear

Hanging on the shelves with little poppy hair

I spy in the library by 3McK:

I spy a bird, some books, and three tinga tinga pictures,

A globe, a lion, and a mixture of fixtures

I spy colorful library bags, with lovely books inside

Children reading with rain outside


Add a poem to our “Poetree”!


This month is poetry month at IST Elementary library and we have our own “poetree” outside the library. Students are encouraged to write their favourite poem, or one they have written themselves, on a blue card and tie it to the tree for others to read.
The grade 1-3 classes are also trying to write their own I Spy in the Library poems based on Jean Marzollo’s I Spy books. Here are some samples:

I spy in the library by 1C:

I spy a human, TV, and a cushion,

Teachers walking in slow motion,

A polar bear, on the book, over there

Kids, with different type of hair.

I Spy in the Library by 3N:

I spy a hook, and a diorama desert,

A puppet, a lion and even a wizard;

A kangaroo, lots of puppets,

Junk monsters and on the floor, carpets.

They are quite hard to write, we’ve discovered!  Thanks to Ms Stella for helping Grade 1-3 classes do these.  I’ll post some more of them tomorrow.
