    POEM to MEMORIZE (work toward word perfect memorization):

    After the Party
    By William Wise

    Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    He isn’t himself today:
    He’s tucked up in bed
    With a feverish head,
    And he doesn’t much care to play.

    Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    And three kinds of ice cream too-
    From his latest reports
    He’s quite out of sorts,
    And I’m sure the reports are true.

    I’m sorry to state
    That he also ate
    Six pickles, a pie, and a pear;
    In fact I confess
    It’s a reasonable guess
    He ate practically everything there.

    Yes, Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    So he’s not at his best today;
    But there’s no need for sorrow-
    If you come back tomorrow,
    I’m sure he’ll be out to play.

    THIS MONTH’S WRITING & RHETORIC ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:

    Summary of The Mouse in Council to be handed in either before January 8th.

    Hanukkah Hanukkah: Read and follow the melody, clap the rhythm with me

    Rhythm Review: Print out the Christmas Tree rhythm handout (found under RESOURCES in the music tab) page before you watch the video. Be sure to have pencil crayons or markers. As I say a rhythm, repeat it and then find it on your page. Color the ornament that has that rhythm pattern.
