lesson image

Instructions: Read the Mother Goose poem, 'The North Wind.' The instructor pronounces the dashed words phonetically and asks children to call out the words.

The north wind doth b-l-ow,

And w-e shall have s-n-ow,

A-n-d what will the r-o-b-i-n do then,

poor thing?

He'll sit in a barn,

And keep himself w-a-r-m,

And hide h-i-s head under his wing,

poor thing!
