Practice writing our names. Lil J writes her first name and is learning her last name and lil W is practicing his first name.
Read the poem The Ticket Collector by Maud Keary
  • THE people come, the people go,
  • The ticket man stands there,
  • The trains rush in and out below,
  • And some one steps aside to know
  • How much his extra fare?
  • None stay to look at anything,
  • But each alone intent,
  • Passes with haste or measured swing,
  • And thinking of a different thing,
  • Walks up the dark ascent.
  • O ticket man, the sky is bright
  • With golden floods of sun—
  • Not yours that wide, blue, radiant sight;
  • Here business jostles out the light
  • And night and day are one.

Read the nursery rhyme Tom, he was a piper's son
Tom he was a piper's son,
He learned to play when he was young,
But all the tunes that he could play
Was "Over the hills and far away".

Tom with his pipe did play with such skill,
That those who heard him could never keep still;
Whenever they heard him they began to dance,
Even pigs on their hind legs would after him prance.
