It’s Poetry Month so of course the sixth graders are working on poetry. My oldest, Meg, worked on a few haiku tonight, and a few limericks, as well as a free verse. But my favorite by far was the limericks. Just have to share:
There once was a reddish wool sweater
which made everything feel much better.
It fell in the sink
which caused it to shrink
and now I can’t wear my red sweater.
And her other one was:
There once was a girl from Brazil
who sometimes became an ill pill.
She jumped all around
and fell to the ground
and her mother said, "What is your deal?!!"
They made me giggle. 🙂
