Math time is just before the first recess,
And children can’t wait to play outside,
But they love math and know they’ll have
Exploration and computer time
When they return if they remain focused.
Except this particular day, our class got an
Unexpected but pleasant surprise, a messenger
Pigeon flew right into the classroom, and
Students forgot all about math faster than a
Tick-tock in a hurry. They excitedly called out,
“Teacher, there’s a bird in the classroom!”
Teacher stopped teaching math and quickly
Turned off the light and asked students to close
The blinds to keep them and the bird safer.
Teacher asked students to remain calm.
Students wanted to catch and play with the bird.
Teacher carefully caught the bird and placed it in
A shoebox. Recess bell rings, and teacher has
Yard duty. What to do with bird. Under
Teacher’s armpit it goes, and students are excited.
Students forget about playground equipment and
Stick by teacher like a tick on a deer.
It was a long recess for sure but bird survives.
Once back in the classroom, students get to
Pet their temporary pet.
Because everyone is in love with the pet,
They forget to close the classroom door
And the messenger pigeon flies right out....
Students eagerness to the thing has been expressed with the birds’ role in the classroom. Very enjoying.
