Me I Am – poem by Jack Prelutsky

One of my favorite poems … It’s lovely

Me I Am !

I am the only Me I Am
Who qualifies as me,
no Me I AM has been before,
and none will ever be
No other Me I Am can feel
the feelings I’ ve within,
no other Me I Am can fit
precisely in my skin
There is no other Me I Am
who thinks the thoughts I do,
the world contains one Me I Am
this earth shall ever see,
that Me I Am I always am
is no one else but Me!

Storytelling

Like I mentioned yesterday, I was following a workshop by Priscilla Howe, on storytelling. It was very nice and I want to share with you her link and give you some informatin on what she talked about. One topic I really liked was the Imagination Game.

Magic Box:

Take an empty box with a lid. Open it secretively, and explain that something is happening in the box. Begin with something silly, such as “Oh! I see two chickens playing football in here. The crowed is going wild. The turtle just stole the ball and made a goal.”

Pass the box to the next person and ask what is going on in the box. does not have to be the same story.

It is a fun activity and I recommend it for elementary/primary children from 6 years onwards
