Today I did my math and science,
I toasted bread,
I halved and quartered,
I counted, measured, used my eyes,
and ears and head.
I added and subtracted on the way,
I used a magnet, blocks and memory tray,
I learnt about a rainbow and how to weigh.
So please. don’t say, anything in your bag today?
You see I am sharing as I play,
I learned to listen and speak clearly when I talk,
to wait my turn, and when inside, to walk.
To put my thoughts into a phrase,
to guide a crayon through a maze,
To find my name and write it down,
to do it with a smile and not a frown.
To put my painting brush away,
so please don’t say, what, nothing in your bag today?
I have learnt about a snail and a worm,
remembering how to take my turn,
Helped a friend when he was stuck,
learnt that water runs off a duck,
I looked at words from left to right,
agreed to differ, not to fight.
So please don’t say, did you only play today?
