Dear Diamond Miners,

Just like we have stacked layers of recycled Trader Joe's bags with  layers of scrap paper and tissue, we also stacked our Preamble to the Kids' Constitution onto the Constitution of the United States. Eric chose the words "stacking together," which makes a lot of sense! Our poem is nearing its end now...



Who will add their words next?

Love, 
Ms. Mordhorst

P.S.  Blog visitors, the Diamond Miners love it when you leave comments directly for them. Thanks for all your encouragement!

*****************************************
BRAINSTORMING 
work hard, seems like, to think, we love, to have, we could
apart and together, pulling and pushing, turning and flippingstacking and building and modeling
***********************************************

When we work  
together
it feels fun 
and
difficult like Lego
pieces,
feels like struggling 
with
frustration and figuring
what 
to do. We
live like Legos,
pushing and building, 
pulling and flipping,
lifting and twisting.
We only have
to 
listen to our
friends 
when we build
Lego 
factories, stack together

  1. I've missed a few days and look how your poem has grown!

    I love your Earth Day Earth! Some of my students made a big poster out of recyclables (and natural items -- sticks and pinecones -- too! Great minds!!

  2. "pushing and building,
    pulling and flipping,
    lifting and twisting."
    Lots of life is just that! It's great to have friends and workers alongside to help with the struggles!
    Great job!

  3. I wonder what they are stacking together? Ideas? Dreams? Words? Compromises? I wonder whether you all will make up any words to describe what you are doing!
