Music with Mr. B

On Friday we had music with Mr. B.  We practiced the song"You're a Grand Old Flag."  







Do you know the lyrics to You're a Grand Old Flag?
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.

Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
The Grand Old Flag of the United States of America

Poem of the Week

Our second poem of the week went home yesterday.  Remember to keep collecting those poems until the end of the school year.

Cats
Cats are furry, cats are small,
Cats are hardly big at all.
Cats can purr and cats can mew.
Do you like cats?
I sure do!
