There Is Nothing in My Bag Today

There’s Nothing In My Bag Today


Today I did math and science,

I toasted bread.

I halved and quartered.

I counted, measured, used my eyes,

and ears and head.

I added and subtracted on the way,

I used a magnet, blocks, and memory tray.

I learned about a rainbow and how to weigh.

So please don't say, anything in your bag today?

You see I'm sharing as I play.

I learned to listen and

speak clearly when I talk,

to wait my turn and when inside to walk.

To put my thoughts into a phrase,

to guide a crayon through a maze.

To find my name and write it down,

to do it with a smile not a frown.

To put my pasting brush away.

So please don't say, what, nothing in your bag?

I learned about a snail and a worm,

remembering how to take a turn.

Helped a friend when he was stuck,

learned that water runs off a duck.

I looked at words from left to right,

agreed to differ, not to fight.

So please don't say, did you only play today?
