Meeting Miss Mack

The Reading Teacher has a brilliant idea   –   A POEM IN YOUR POCKET.

Find a Poem.  Memorize the Poem.  Recite the Poem.  3 days to complete the task.

We were up for the challenge.   It was decided that the poem had to be short or else it couldn’t be memorized.    I know,  I know…pick your battles.

So we went with a short poem.  Then the work began…

Writing.  Memorizing.  Reciting.  Listening to the rhythm of the words.  Clapping along. BookWater 002

The selected poem is Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack. EarthDay 014

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack…

All Dressed in Black, Black, Black..

With Silver Buttons, Buttons, Buttons…

All Down her Back, Back, Back.

She went upstairs to make her bed…

She made a mistake and bumped her head.

She went downstairs to wash the dishes…

She made a mistake and washed her wishes.

She went outside to hang the clothes…

She made a mistake and hung her nose.

Miss Mary Mack may be Short and Sweet, but she delivers a Wallop of Power…

Building confidence.  Enjoying the silliness of the words.  Feeling Proud. QuiltFloorReveal 033

AND CREATING A READER…I was struck by the MAGIC.
