I know some people can't participate every day for various reasons. DON'T SWEAT IT! Every day is a new day!! I think it's awesome that everyone is doing what they can when they can. KEEP IT UP!

YESTERDAY'S CHALLENGE: HAIKU for you

Brought to you by: Tahani D


HOW IT WILL WORK:

I'm asking you to write a Haiku about how you're feeling or what you're learning during quarantine. I'll share them anonymously on Monday!


YESTERDAY'S RESULTS:

MY HAIKU:

All that will matter

Will be kindness in the end

That is what I'll bring.


MORE HAIKUS:

I’m stuck in my house

I’m always washing my hands

I am very bored


Knock, Knock who is there

No one, just me raiding the

Refrigerator


Pandemic is here

Spread love, not COVID-19

United we stand


Yoga starts my day

And I'm grateful for Netflix

But, bouncing off walls


On a rainy day

We all play Wii sports tennis

Fun and exercise 


I have a teen girl

She loves Tik Tok and YouTube

Glued phone on her hand


On Sunday morning

It is Sunjay Gupta time

Watches together


During quarantine 

Marco sings us birthday song 

Every morning


I wish to go skate

I want to go back to school

Miss my friends a lot


As boredom floods us

Hospitals work overtime

Stay home and stay safe



GREAT JOB!!!

TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED YESTERDAY!!!


ANYONE IS WELCOME TO PLAY, SO TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
