alarm shockingly ringing

school year beginning

Hello Hedgie

25 Aug

Through my window blows a cooling breeze.

Outside I hear the rustling leaves.

I have things to do and places to be.

Projects to finish and people to see.

But I feel my summer slipping away,

As I anticipate the first school day.

Of course I’ll have new students to meet,

And my teacher friends I’ll want to greet.

So my ninth year begins with a favorite friend,

Who’ll be in my classroom until it ends.

Hello dear Hedgie. 

It’s so good to see you again.

Hedgie and Jan Brett’s book Hedgie’s Surprise will be the theme this year in my classroom.  Hedgie was my classroom theme in 2007. 

I think Hedgie is adorable.  Don’t you?

How do you transition?

Do you scream?  Do you yell?

Do you stomp off and cry?

Do you do what you’re told and don’t ask why?

Do you even try?

Do you come when you’re called?  Or do you hide?

Do you say something snide?

Do you keep it all bottled up inside?

Are  you helpful?  Are you thoughtful?

Are you mean or quite possibly awful?

Are you mad?  Are you sad?

Or does this all make you glad?

Are you bad?

Do you stop and think?  Or stare and blink?

Or is your excitement just on the brink?

Do you smile? 

Or do you frown for a while?

Do you cross your arms and glare with style?

Do you anticipate what’s coming up?

Or maybe you just want to give up?

Do you kick?  Do you hit?

Do you throw a fit?

Do you sit?

It’s a hard job as you can see,

To conduct the Preschool Transitioning Melody.
