Unit 1: The Heart's Deep Core Assessment

The Caged Bird is the main character int the poem Sympathy, and it symbolizes captivity. While it is captive and beaten, it still sings because it has hope of freedom. The Wanderer is the character int the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, he is devoted to his mission and, while he is tempted to stay where he is, he continues on with his journey.

The Bird follows his heart by continuing to flap his wings and sing his song, trying to show that he still has hope for freedom, even though kept in a cage. The Wanderer is out riding his horse, when he comes across a clearing that is completely tranquil, and stops momentarily to watch the snow. Then he continues on his journey, and devotes himself to finish it before he sleeps.

In both instances the only one benefiting from their decision to follow their heart is themselves. They also are put in more danger from their decision, because they could be hurt more due to the fact that the Wanderer stops and refuses to sleep, and the Caged Bird keeps fighting and trying to break free of its cage.

Music Monday... Major Tom

This is the original German version of Major Tom, by Peter Schilling. It is a great song, but it is in German, so I cannot understand what he is saying.

This is the English version of Peter Schilling's Major Tom.

I think it is almost as good as David Bowie's Major Tom.

This is David Bowie's version of Major Tom (Space Oddity). I believe it is the best of the three versions by far. Tell me in the comments which one you like the best and I hope you enjoy the songs.

Works for me Wednesday...keeping kids from being bored over the summer

works for me wednesday at we are that family

Some really good non-download games to play over the summer are: OMGPOP, any Artix Entertainment game, or Fallensword.

My favorite type of anime, but I don't have cable so Anime Crazy is very helpful. I am a kid and these are my favorite things to do over the summer.

I hope that your children will like them too.
