An earth day poem: What do you see?

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on April 23, 2011

in Earth Day, Special Occasions, The Value of Play

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.

Love this!! I love looking through my box of recycled “craft” supplies — and the girls do too!

My mom said when one of my sisters was little, she would go into her room and find all kinds of things my sister had pulled out of the trash to use for her “projects”. Today, she is a graphic designer and musician — and she can transform things in ways I would never consider!

Isn’t that amazing that she had such a vision so young? I don’t have that vision naturally – I have to work at it:)

This is a wonderful idea. Some of this stuff I can definitely use at home

Haha – this is all stuff I have been collecting for some time – now I just need to start using it!

This was great, Deborah. You have my mind perking on a conference for teachers based on this idea. Thanks for sharing.
