    I am making a brochure for Meet the Teacher night and I wanted to include a short poem or quote about going back to school, or having a successful year, etc. Anyone have any favorites?

    Read To Me
    By Jane Yolen

    Read to me riddles and read to me rhymes,
    Read to me stories of magical times.
    Read to me tales about castles and kings.
    Read to me stories of fabulous things.
    Read to me pirates and read to me knights,
    Read to me dragons and dragon-book fights.
    Read to me spaceships and cowboys and then,
    When you are finished -- please read them again.

    -------------------------------
    Partnership

    They bring their child to me

    And hope I'll come to know

    How much the offspring means to them,

    Their trust in me bestowed.

    They bring their child to me

    With love and hope and pride,

    Looking for a helping hand,

    A teacher who will guide.

    They bring their child to me,

    And our partnership is clear:

    To nurture and allow to bloom

    A life we both hold dear.

    They bring their child to me,

    A step toward letting go

    And trusting in our special plan

    To help the child grow.

    When children come home at the end of the day,

    The question they're asked as they scurry to play

    is, "Tell me what you did today?"

    And the answer they give makes you sigh with dismay.

    "Nothing, I did nothing today!"

    Perhaps nothing means that I played with blocks,

    Or counted to ten, or sorted some rocks.

    Maybe I painted a picture of red and blue

    Or heard a story of a mouse that flew.

    Maybe I watched the gerbils eat today,

    Or went outside on the swings to play.

    Maybe today was the very first time

    That my scissors follwed a very straight line

    Maybe I lead a song from beginning to end,

    Or played with a special brand new friend.

    When you're in school

    And your heart has wings,

    "Nothing" can mean so many things!!

    WHY HANDS-ON?

    I TRIED TO TEACH MY CHILD WITH BOOKS;

    HE GAVE ME ONLY PUZZLED LOOKS.

    I TRIED TO TEACH MY CHILD WITH WORDS;

    THEY PASSED HIM BY OFTEN UNHEARD.

    DESPAIRINGLY, I TURNED ASIDE;

    "HOW SHALL I TEACH THIS CHILD," I CRIED?

    INTO MY HAND HE PUT THE KEY,

    "COME," HE SAID, "PLAY WITH ME."
