poetry lessons

Our family tradition is that the Easter leaves rhyming couplets telling each child where their basket is hidden in the house. It is a good warm up for the Easter Bunny, who will start his haiku season today. Well, as Charlotte Mason teaches us, exposure to great art inspires creativity, so last night a five year old composed this:

Gone, Sean, John,
Your hair is so blond,
You can find your basket,
In the kit-chun.

Also, the kids are hard at work trying to find a rhyme for toilet.

How about this:

Where is your basket?
I don't want to spoil it.
But you'd do very well
To look in the toilet.

Change that to:
Where is the spell checker?
