London Bridge London is the capital of the United Kingdom, ad one of the largest cities in the world. It stands on both sides of the Thames River which is both tidal and navigable, and which narrows to 325 yards at the site of London Bridge. One of many fine bridges which now span the Thames, London Bridge first was built by the Romans. It was hauled down by Vikings in the eleventh century, but rebuilt. It was the only bridge across the river until 1750. The present bridge was built in 1831 of Aberdeen granite. The precise limit of the tides is marked by London Bridge, and when the tide ebbs from the bridge, the foreshores of this old city are worth searching for diverse relics which remain from nearly 2,000 years of continuous habitation.

Writing

Big Action words are not the only words that you should choose carefully. Descriptive words are just as important.

Big is a general word. Tall is more specific; so is fat. Each of these words tells in what way something is big. A word like monstrous tells us even more. Something monstrous is frightening as well as big. Think of different words you might use to describe a house. Spacious might fit, or substantial, or huge. What about imposing? That could be used, too. But a word like fat would not work. However, if you were describing a person, fat might be a better word than huge . The correct word will depend on the particular thing you are writing about. Specific Words for Big

Read a story that uses the key words: I stepped through the wall into a land of giants. Of course, I did not realize at first that the "forest of trees" I walked through was really an expansive lawn with gigantic blades of grass. It first struck me when I climbed a tall sturdy stalk of grass and sensed a huge shadow, like a cloud pass over me. I looked up in time to see a huge butterfly. Its substantial wings spead over six feet in each direction. The body was at least as large as myself. My heart went from shock and surprise to panic, when I heard a sharp snap, saw a long sticky tongue flick out and the butterfly disappear into the gaping jaws of a monstrous toad. My heart nearly stopped when I noticed that his huge, peering eyes had caught sight of me! As he repositioned his hulking frame for the attack, I leaped hastily to the ground. Step 3.

High in the steep canyon, behind the massive dam, the waters accumulated far beyond flood stage. Bulky flood gates had been open all week, but the tons of earth and rock were no longer enough for the vast waters they held. With a tremendous crashing, crunching sound that could be heard for many miles, the waters broke through. The surging, churning wave of water, mud, and rock crashed through the canyon, poring and gouging and ripping everything in its path.

Polly, Put the Kettle On

Mother's Knives and Forks

Polly, put the kettle on, Polly, put the kettle on, Polly, put the kettle on, We'll all have tea.

These are mother's knives and forks, and this is father's table. This is sister's looking glass, and this is the baby's cradle.

Sukey, take it off again, Sukey, take it off again, Sukey, take it off again, They've all gone away. This old nursery rhyme has been credited to various countries. Some believe the words are English and the tune is Scottish. Others assign it to Germany, because the tune is very much like the Hansel and Gretel Dance in the opera of the same name by the German composer Humperdink. In the eighteenth century it was a familiar nursery song and country dance known as Jenny's Bawbee. I made its appearance in the mussic halls about 1870. Children have made up countless verses to the song to represent their interests and activites. The rhythm is excellent for tapping, clapping, or dancing. Activity: make up new verses

This old nursery rhyme is also a finger play song. To make the knives and forks, fold hands with fingers interlaced and pointing upwards; flatten fingers against the hands to make the table; turn hands, still folded, with thumbs straight up to form the looking glass; lower thumb and cup folded hands to form the cradle.
