Asking questions about your child's day

30/01/2014

Nothing

When children come home at the end of the day,
The question they're asked as they scurry to play
is, "Tell me what you did today?"
And the answer they give makes you sigh with dismay.
"Nothing, I did nothing today!"
Perhaps nothing means that I played with blocks,
Or counted to ten, or sorted some rocks.
Maybe I painted a picture of red and blue
Or heard a story of a mouse that flew.
Maybe I watched the guinea pigs eat today,
Or went outside on the fort to play.
Maybe today was the very first time
That my scissors followed a very straight line
Maybe I lead a song from beginning to end,
Or played with a special brand new friend.
When you're in school
with all the learning that it brings,
"Nothing" can mean so many things!!
 
Show an active interest in your child’s learning and ask them about their day, teachers use the following acronyms to explicitly teach:
WALT : We are learning to
WILF: What I’m looking for
TIB: This is because
Every day counts!
