Peaceful Afternoon

We went outside to listen to nature. When we got to the field, I could hear branches waving gently in the breeze. It was really peaceful! The grass was prickly. After that, we went in the nice cool shade and I could feel the gush of wind. I heard sounds of distant traffic. When I was listening hard, I could hear cheerful chirping birds. I couldn't hear cicadas because I was used to them. There were billowy clouds. Finally we went back to our class.

  1. Hello, my name is Ingrid W. and I am a college student at the University of South Alabama. I am a double major in Secondary Education and Biology. I have thoroughly enjoyed commenting on teacher and student blogs from all around the world. It is very exciting to see your class blog and I really like the "All about _____" section of the blog. It is very personal and reminds children that they are all individuals.
    I really did feel like I was a part of your class's "Peaceful Afternoon" when I read your description of the trip you and your students took outside. You are a really good descriptive writer, by the way. I was a little curious when you mentioned the sound of cicadas. I knew I had heard the name before, but couldn't quite remember. I Googled it and discovered they are similar to locusts, but not the same as them. Do they make the same noise as grasshoppers?

    Thank you so much for inviting myself and the rest of EDM 310 to collaborate with you and your classroom.
