Wednesday Words

Can you remember your feelings when you were about to begin second grade?  Did you have lots of questions run through your mind?

* Will my teacher like me?
* Will I have friends in my new class?
* Will I know how to do the work?
* Will I remember my bus number when it's time to go home?

Prolific children's poet, Aileen Fisher, addresses a child's wonderings in her poem below.

              The First Day of School 
                  by Aileen Fisher
I wonder if my drawing will be as good as theirs
I wonder if they'll like me, or just be full of stares
I wonder if my teacher will look like mom or gram
And I wonder if my puppy will wonder where I am.
