Thunder Mountain inspires poetry While fifth graders were enjoying the view from the top of Thunder Mountain during their recent field trip there, many were inspired by the muse of poetry. Some of their poems appear below. Others will appear in a future: edition o/The Journal-Press. A Poem About How I Feel There are green trees. That's what pleases me. The town looks really cool. I really like school. We are at the top of the mountain. Our school has a drinking fountain. 1 love the colors, But not as I love my mother. I love the blue skies. It almost makes me start to cry. I found a cool fort. I heard my father snort. I like health. I wanf to fly a Stealth. We played lots of games. I like horses' manes. Andrew loves the Navy. I love chicken and gravy. There are a lot of horses. I really want a Porshe. We sang happy birthday to Mr. Barber. I'm sort of a farmer. I like math. My little sister took a bubble bath. I like science. My father used metal appliances. I had a good lunch meal. This is a poem about how I feel. - Jamie McNally When you're on the tippy top of Thunder Mountain, you see a beautiful sight with all the queen lace and penny royal you see there just so bright. All the mountains line up so beautifully and all the houses just glimmer and shine. It gives me peace just to sit here and look at the woven fields of mine. - M a l l o r y O ’ D o n n e l l When I Look Down When I look straight and far I feel feelings I can't describe. When I look in the sky I see beautiful blue sky that never ends. When I look at the trees I see colors that seem to scream out to the sky. I see houses, churches, and schools. I wish I could stay here forever. The animals, the trees, the grass, the flowers, the sky all seem so special to me when I look down. - Brendan Brierley Standing on this Mountain I see almost nothing but sky up so high. I hear nothing but siience down so low to the ground Standing on this Mountain - Melissa Robertson Nature The birds, the creatures, all scurrying from man, like we are the enemy, when we could be friends. For ever and ever I will never forget, and hopefully you will not either. If you ever dream you will see All the trees and the bumble bees. Here or there or anywhere, You can dream the dream, but sometimes I believe if you see, it's even more a dream than ever. - Sarah Durrin Sitting on this Mountain I see a hawk fly In the bright blue sky. I see tree tops And I see green fields, I sit in silence And I'm at peace Sitting on this Mountain. - Julie Bussing Thunder Mountain The view is spectacular, the mountain glittering in the sunlight, the birds flying so high, so fast. The houses look like toys and the colors of the trees look gorgeous on this mountain, Thunder Mountain. - Jacob Golde Pictured are two classes' new officers.

The workshop uses movement ac­ tivities and games appropriate in a classroom setting to reinforce the NYS curricula including reading, writing, science, and math development. The activities and games also foster coop­ erative problem-solving skills, creativ­ ity, and social skills. Because classroom movement ac­ tivities include many styles of sensory and physical learning, they are useful to children of all levels, and supportive to kinesthetic learners of all styles. Workshop participants will learn easily reproducible movement activities and games applicable to both elemen­ tary and post-elementary school levels. These activities are designed to include students with special needs. Workshop leader Lili Loveday has been teaching modem, ballet, and ex­ pressive dance techniques in the Capital district and surrounding areas for the past 20 years.
