These are the things that the kids had to share about the story The Nightingale, what they like about clocks and their clock poems. I put up all of the pictures for the rest of the week here also.
The words we learned from the story The Nightingale were respect, caring, and loyalty. Their (mainly Ariel) definitions were:
Respect- Being considerate
Caring- Be concerned
Ariel’s favorite/dislike things about The Nightingale.
I like the birds. The real one it’s song and color. Even though it was gray. I do not like gray, but it fitted on that bird. The golden one, WOW! Gold! I liked it for the same reason color and song.
I did not like the emperor because he banished the real bird. And broke the golden one because he kept winding it and playing the song.
Joshua favorite/dislike things about The Nightingale.
I liked both the emperors because they were leaders. I liked the birds because of their songs.
I did not like the cooks song or the death guy. Because death was dark.
Daniel favorite/dislike things about The Nightingale.
Emperor I just liked how he talked and looked. I liked the birds they looked different. They sang different. One is real, one is not. Different colors, one is gold. I like gold a lot because it’s dark yellow, you know.
I didn’t like Death. He feels icky or dark. I think icky.
I liked that the Nightingale saved him with a song.
Why I like clocks!
Daniel: They spin. I like time a lot because the hands move.
Joshua: The hands move.
The hands move
I like them moving
I think about them,
with the hands spinning.
I like the clocks,
even when they turn off.
Even when the alarm beeps.
I like the way they look,
and all their numbers.
The gears move to make the clock go.
I think of numbers,
when I think of clocks.
When I look at 12,
it is either yellow or red.
The gold gears move.
The hands tell the time.
And 11 to me looks red or gray.
And 10 to me just looks red or black.
Time to me looks like blue,
or grayish blue, really it looks like grayish blue.
I like clocks.
Happy to me looks red and yellow.
Clocks make me happy.
