Today was the Poets Celebration in Aleena's first grade class. Parents were invited to come and watch as each student read a poem that they wrote. Aleena's poem was title Wiggly Tooth. Ironically, the wiggly tooth that inspired the poem came out later in the day.
In addition to the individual poems, the class performed "If I Weren't a First Grader". I had heard Aleena recite this before, and I made my own version. Unfortunately my version was unappreciated by the six and seven year olds.
The kids all did a great job. After the poems, they enjoyed snacks brought by the parents. The celebration was well timed, as today was a Thai holiday, allowing more parents to attend.
