I Am From....
As I was filling in the blanks I thought this would be a fun 1st day/week of school "get to know you" activity. Teachers and students could learn so much about each other. It also works on writing and reading skills well as poetry. Classes could do one at the beginning of the year and one at the end of the year and see if "where they'rey from" had changed.
Doing this exercise also reminded me how thankful I am for where I came from.
Anyway... here's mine:
I Am From:
I am from Cabbage Patch Kids
From cassette tapes, boom boxes, and New Kids On The Block
I am from a three bedroom house
with two bathrooms
I am from bushes outside my window
That kept me from sneaking out of my house
I am from a 1985 white Silverado Chevy and a 21 foot camper
From Ellisons and Lindseys
and from blunt people and readers
I am from campers
From steak and potato salad
From Desert Storm
And from the Live Stock Show and Rodeo
A pink teddy bear
I am from the moments we played cards as a family
and went camping with family and friends
