The Duel by Eugene Field

Ben just finished memorizing the poem The Duel by Eugene Field.  This was a fun one!  I hope you can understand him.  He is stuffy with a cold.  Plus is missing two teeth.....and worst of all...he is a distracted almost 7year old boy!!  Enjoy!
Ohh and if you listen closely you can hear Cla yelling at the girls!

Jamie, that was fantastic!!! We have never worked on memorizing poems like that - where do we even start?

Katie, we follow MODG (with some substituting). It is just part of the curriculum. If you buy Laura Berquists book The Harp and the Laurel Wreath all of the poems are in there. I don't have that book so I am always digging around for them here and there. If you want the various poems for certain grade levels let me know and I can send you a list (K-2 roughly are all on the blog somewhere). We just do it as part of our school day....we just drill them for a few weeks and that is that.
