Morning Announcements: Tuesday, May 12th, 2020

Good Morning Bobcats!!!

Today is known as National Limerick Day.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Observed annually on May 12th, National Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of English artist, illustrator, author, and poet Edward Lear.  A limerick is a very short, humorous, nonsense poem. Within a limerick, there are five lines. The first two lines rhyme with the fifth line and the third and fourth line rhyme together.

 Here’s an example:

                                                                                                                                                          A teacher she’d wanted to be                                                                                                Since the tender age of just three                                                                                                She was very brave                                                                                                                      And to her kids she gave                                                                                                             Faith that they would succeed     

Give it a try today and see if you can write a limerick about anything at all.                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Interesting Fact of the Day:  Did you know that the largest peanut butter cup ever made weighed 440 pounds?  Wow!  That would definitely be one HUGE candy bar!!!

Joke of the Day:  The teacher said to her class one day, “Who ever answers my next question can go home.  Just then a little boy threw his bag out the window.  The teacher asked, “Who just threw that?”  The little boy answered, “Me.  I’m going home now.”   (Now that’s a smart kid!)

Happy Birthday wishes go out to 1st grader, Morgan Teut, and 5th grader, Jax Kluver, today!  We hope you both have a great day filled with all kinds of fun!
