Phonics Poem for this story:

Nature’s Creatures



What can we discover outdoors?

What creatures can we see?

A flock of crows, a little black ant-

They interest me.



A bluebird nest, a screeching gray owl,

A pond with croaking frogs.

Snakes that like to sun themselves.

Stretched out like frogs.

Phonics Poem of the week

Where Can We Turn?

When we think of new things
That we wish to learn,
We must search for answers.
Where can we turn?

We can watch as people
Show us what we do.
We can check out books with facts and
Read them through and through.

Phonics Poem for this story:

Nature’s Creatures



What can we discover outdoors?

What creatures can we see?

A flock of crows, a little black ant-

They interest me.



A bluebird nest, a screeching gray owl,

A pond with croaking frogs.

Snakes that like to sun themselves.

Stretched out like frogs.

Phonics Poem of the week

Where Can We Turn?

When we think of new things
That we wish to learn,
We must search for answers.
Where can we turn?

We can watch as people
Show us what we do.
We can check out books with facts and
Read them through and through.

Phonics Poem for this story:
Nature’s Creatures

What can we discover outdoors?
What creatures can we see?
A flock of crows, a little black ant-
They interest me.

A bluebird nest, a screeching gray owl,
A pond with croaking frogs.
Snakes that like to sun themselves.
Stretched out like frogs.
