I wrote this little earth day poem based on the story “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” by Bill Martin Jr. and  Eric Carle.

Teacher, teacher what do you see? I see lady bugs, sorting, and counting games looking at me….

Teacher, teacher what do you see? I see paper animals, trees, flowers, and instruments looking at me…

Teacher, teacher what do you see? I see bowling pins, spy games, and painting tools looking at me…

Teacher, teacher what do you see? I see paint holders, sorting trays, dinosaurs, and caterpillars looking at me…

Teacher, teacher what do you see? I see paint canvases, baskets, and vests looking at me…

Teacher, teacher what do you see?, I see butterflies and sensory play looking at me…

Children, children what do you see? We see the opportunity to play, create, explore, and learn…

That’s what we see.
