We get three major holidays this month.
- May 5 – Cinco de Mayo
- May 11 – Mother’s Day
- May 26 – Memorial Day
Today is Cinco de Mayo, and in six days we will all be celebrating together a very “Happy Mother’s Day!”
As is traditional on our site, we always welcome our months with a poem. Not all poems rhyme, but children usually love it when they do. Therefore, have some fun this month with all the simple one syllable words that rhyme with our month.
Interestingly enough, there is a word for every consonant except for three – v, x, and z.
NOT REAL WORDS
Here is my children’s rhyme. What is yours?
Welcome, it’s wonderful May.
Go out and enjoy this great day.
The park is for all kinds of play.
No rules, just to have it your way!
NOTE: This is a special post for all word lovers, Scrabble players, and all others who just might want to share some word fun with their children or grandchildren.
