Emma Eggy Bread, Moses and Magnets

We have been writing poems. Here is a rhyming poem ...

EMMA EGGY BREAD
By  Louisa  Kirsten  Monger

This is Emma Eggy Bread.
Emma was sewing with thread,
Before she went to  bed
She was sewing a dress  that  was  red
“I am   bit  tired” Emma said
“And  I  have a  got  a  ache  in  my  head
I’ll  get  better  if  I  go  to  bed.”

We have also been learning all about the Underground Railroad. We have been reading "Listen to the Whippoorwill" and "The Drinking Gourd" and have written our own spirituals and slave songs.

Moses
            
Moses, Moses, people follow Moses.
We’re goin’ up  to  Canaan.
We’re goin’ to  the  Promised Land.

Moses, Moses, people follow Moses.
We’re  lookin’ up  to  Heaven
Lookin’ up at  the  stars.

Moses, Moses, people follow Moses.
Egyptians are a comin’
Run  for  your life.

Moses, Moses, people follow Moses.
Get  to  the river 
It’s  safe on the other  side.

Moses, Moses, people follow Moses.

By Louisa  Kirsten Monger


CODE: Moses = Harriet Tubman    Canaan = Canada    Promised Land = freedom  
Stars = Big Dipper and North Star    Egyptians = slave catchers   River = safe from dogs in the water


To play on the ukelele, Line 1: C C F C     Line 2: G7    Line 3: G7 C

We have been learning about magnets. Here is a something we made to show how the same poles on magnets push apart. We also made a compass with a needle.

  2. This is Emma Egg on Toast
    She went on holiday to the coast
    For supper she had piggy roast
    "I can eat a lot" I heard her boast
    She put a letter in the post
    To Louisa who she loves the most

  3. Dear Amisadai and Louisa
    You did a great job on the Hovering Bee project!
    The garden was so pretty I am not surprised that the bee wanted to hover there.
    Love M xx
