May through September 2018
As part of Summer Reading at New York Libraries, the State Education Department and myON are partnering to bring thousands of enhanced digital books to children from birth through 8th grade and their families all around the state!
Read the poem called My Garden. Then read it again and do the hand motions.
This is my garden;
(extend one hand forward, palm up)
I’ll rake it with care,
(make raking motion on palm with other hand)
And then some flower seeds, I’ll plant
The sun will shine
(make circle with hands)
And the rain will fall,
(let fingers flutter down to lap)
And my garden will blossom
(cup hands together, extend upward slowly)
And grow straight and tall.
