I have had an important, albeit inadvertent discovery. People love video poems. I came to realize this after recently posting one on my Facebook page; Facebook/growwithmepoetry. I was floored by the number of hits it generated in just a couple of days. It seems my readers, or should I say viewers, are trying to tell me something. The best part is that I really love doing video poems. So how about this deal? Let your kids grow with me as I grow with video poetry! I'd like to use a format similar to the one I use in Grow with Me Poetry. Each VLOG with include a video poem and an activity for you and your child to have fun with afterwards. It will be some welcome and organized fun during this COVID19 world.
The Bad Hair Day
One day my hair got up on the wrong side of the bed
It wanted to lay down rather than get up instead
What is this ball of yarn I have for hair?
I wish I wasn't already awake from this horrible nightmare
I patted it down and try as I might
It simply turned on its heels and continued to fight
Another curl went that way and hung right down
When I looked in the mirror, you would've sworn I was a clown
Oh, I give up, it's time to surrender
It looks like my hair's been caught in a blender
Now my mom's yelling, we're gonna be late
Get down here right now, she's really irate
But when she saw me, she let out a big shriek
I saw her knees wobble, I think they went weak
Your hair, she cried, I know just what to do
I'll be back in a sec, or maybe a few
In a flash she flew up the stairs and was gone
Returning with something for me to put on
My favorite hat, she was the BOMB!
She was the BEST, MOM of ALL MOMS!
So here lays my hair under my hat
I put it to bed so it could lay flat.
Activities for you and your child:
There you have it, me and my worst curly hair day! Be sure to stay tuned for more good video times and rhymes. Also, remember that Grow with Me Poetry is just 8 days away from its official release and it is also available for preorder on Amazon.com. I'm looking forward to seeing you and the kids again soon! Bye-bye for now.
