Dinosaurs: Poems and Songs for Children

Hello dear friends!
The topic of the day is dinosaurs!
I don't know why kids like these prehistoric creatures , but they do love stories, poems and songs about them. So, here you'll find two funny poems and an  amusing song devoted to dinosaurs! 

    by Jack Prelutsky

Brachiosaurus had little to do
    but stand with its head in the treetops and chew,

    it nibbled the leaves that were tender and green,
    it was a perpetual eating machine.

Brachiosaurus was truly immense,

    its vacuous mind was uncluttered by sense,

    it hadn't the need to be clever and wise,

    no beast dared to bother a being its size.

Nice for Reading: I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings By Maya Angelou

a-free-birdHello,dear learners!
Today we'll read an amazing poem which I was greatly impressed with . So I decided to post it to enjoy the poem together. The short lines of it are full of unbelievable strength and deep thoughts about life.
Are you ready to answer the question if  you are a free bird or a caged one ?

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

By Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

Let It Go: Songs for Studying English

Hello, dear learners!
Winter is a beautiful season, but one should be careful: the Snow Queen sometimes turns the hearts into ice and the people become frozen. No feelings, no emotions, nothing... To prevent this, you shouldn't forget to say the words of love to your nearest and dearest, laugh  with your friends and  sing songs .
So, let's sing and study English.
This song is the official sound track to the animated film "Frozen" and it won the Oscar Award for the Best Song in 2014.

let go -  to stop thinking about or being angry about the past or something that happened in the past:
swirling - to  move quickly with a twisting, circular movement

 Jack Frost

The door was shut, as doors should be,
Before you went to bed last night;
Yet Jack Frost has got in, you see,
And left your window silver white.

Adverbs : -ly ending

Hello,dear learners!
Today we'll study adverbs again. (Part 1 is here.) Hope, you  will find some useful tips in this post.

The most common way to form adverbs is to add -ly to adjectives:
gentle-gently, wonderful - wonderfully, sad - sadly, etc.

But there are some words with  ending  -ly   which are not adverbs. They are adjectives :
elderly,cowardly,friendly,likely,deadly,lively,lonely,silly,ugly,lovely, etc.
John is a kind and friendly person.
It was an ugly creature.
One should use the words way/manner to form their adverbs:
They talked in a friendly way/manner.
