cherry blossoms at Blair

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom at Blair. We read Have You Seen Trees? by Joanne Oppenheim with all the primary classes. There is a beautiful illustration of a cherry blossom tree on the cover.

Division 7 went outside and took some photographs of our trees with the school cameras.

We also read some of the winning haiku poems from the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival and then wrote some of our own!

pink cherry blossoms
all over the ground
like pink snow
~by Riley and Tommy, div 7

climbing the tree
pink everywhere
picking cherry blossoms
~by Liat, div 7

recess outside
running around the trees
pink petals on our cheeks
~by division 7

running cherry blossoms
following the wind
after me
~by Tommy, div 8

I love cherry blossoms
they love me
I love cherry blossoms following me!
~by Mya, div 8

the cherry blossoms
are so beautiful
and I like them all
~by Bobby, div 8

Aren't our young poets inspiring?
