My Pencil by Mariah Davis

In a discussion of the role  of the Egyptian Scribe in Mrs. Berretta’s Language Arts Class, students in 5-301 and visiting college student- Mariah Davis, reflect on the role of the pencil as a writing device which allows students to reflect on life…

Oh the pencil I hold in my hand writing this poem

You are wonderful

like a piece of gold
You have been there

to correct my many mistakes
I’ve often tapped you on my desk in high debate
What to write about…

I don’t know
But when my thoughts and words came…

you let them flow
On my piece of paper is where they went
Forming letters…

that formed words…

that formed sentences…

that formed paragraphs…

that formed essays…

that formed short stories…

and poems

Thank you pencil for being in my life

I love you with all my heart and soul

Reflections on the Egyptian Scribe and the Modern Day Pencil with Mrs. Berretta

ThinkQuest

ThinkQuest

It all begins with the written word…and as 5th graders begin their study of the Scribe and Ancient Eqypt with Mrs. Berretta, it must begin with the…pencil…

Pencil Pencil by Yamrod 4/5-301

Pencil, Pencil
You provide everything for me
Write, Write
There’s nothing to think about
Your like a tool to me
I can use you here, there and everywhere
Pencil, Pencil
Can you write a poem, story, book,
Anything?
Pencil, Pencil
Your my friend.

Hey Pencil by Kelia 4/5-301

Hey Pencil!
You’re in my hand.
You write with me.
You draw a man
Can you hear that cool tune?
When I write- just listen.
Y’All hear it too?
You lay on my notebook.
You stand in my hand.
You’re SO orange.
You’re interesting too.
You make me think about not sharpening you.

The Pencil by Victoria 4/5-301

The carved yellow pencil
The red eraser on top of it
The black words that are painted on it
Oh what a beautiful pencil it is
When I sharpen it
Look at that sharp point on it
It’s there for me when I need it for homework
It’s there for me when I’m writing steps
My pencil is my friend
When I was little it was there for me
To help me write my name
Oh as it sits on my desk
I just look at it as I would my best friend

There You Are by Aiza 4-301

There you are sitting on the desk
I won’t call you a pesk
You mean everything to me
What should I call you?
And how will it match you?
Would you write a small poem about a ball
Sitting in a mall?
You’re so special to me
What do I mean by he?
I mean ooops!
Can you do a little bit of  hoola hoop?
You’re so nice
But sometimes I think you won’t work
AAAAHHH!
I got it!
I’ll name you York

There You Are Evil Pen! by Anthony R 4-301

There you are pen
I was looking for you
Where would you be?
Next thing you were gone forever.
AAAAaaHHHHhhhh! A robot pen!
Help us robot paper.

Students were instructed to change the format of their AppleWorks6 Painting Canvas from a Portrait (vertical) orientation to a Landscape (horizontal) orientation. The default canvas template is 468 pixels wide and 638 pixels high. We reformatted it to a canvas that was 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high (which is a 4:3 ratio aspect).

Hindi:

Vaishnav Jan to tene kahiye
Jay peerh paraaye janneyray
Par dukkhey upkar karey teeyey, man abhiman na anney ray
Sakal lokma Sahuney bandhey,

English:

Speak only as godlike of the man who feels another’s pain
Who shares another’s sorrow and pride does disdain
Who regards himself lowliest of the low
Speaks not a word of evil against anyone

The version popularized by Mahatma Gandhi:

Transliteration (ITRANS):

raghupati raaghav raajaaraam,
patit paavan sitaram
siitaaraam, sitaram,
bhaj pyaare tu sitaram
iishvar allaah tero naam,
sab ko sanmati de bhagavaan

Translation:

Lord Rama, Chief of the house of Raghu,
Uplifters of those who have fallen, (O divine couple) Sita and Rama,
Beloved, praise Sita and Rama,
God or Allah is your name, (meaning that the supreme can be called by many names)
Lord, bless everyone with this wisdom.

Shiva is the destroyer of the world, following Brahma the creator and Vishnu the preserver, after which Brahma again creates the world and so on. Shiva is responsible for change both in the form of death and destruction and in the positive sense of the shedding of old habits. In Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram or Truth, Goodness and Beauty, Shiva also represents the most essential goodness. Shiva is the god of the yogis, self-controlled and celibate, while at the same time a lover of his spouse (shakti). Shiva’s first wife was Sati and his second wife was Parvati, also known as Uma, Gauri, Durga, Kali, and Shakti. His sons are Ganesha and Kartikeya. Shiva lives on Mount Kailasa in the Himalayas.” This introduction on Shiva was made by Christine Gruenwald and Peter Marchand and taken from the sanatansociety.org.
