Oh my, first day of school and opening ceremonies are tomorrow! (we have a rose ceremony where the 8th graders give a rose to the first graders, so sweet...) Seems like yesterday my son was doing this! Now he is off living his adventure in the big city !
Fourth grade opening verse:
From as far as the stars,
To here where where I stand,
I come to use my right and left hand.
The things I create
Are done with great care.
My fingers to help me,
and friendship to share!
(with hand movements...)
Hands and heart.
Truth and beauty,
are never apart.
Then I say,
"Follow your heart,
in all that you think,
in all that you say,
and all that you do."
My verses for other grades include:
May our hands complete our work with patience,
May our work be done with care,
May our fingers work as friends together,
And may we our friendship share.
I have fourth through eighth grade this year...wish me luck!
Oh, and I would love love love to hear your verses you may use!!! I am always looking for new inspiration, especially for upper grades verses!
