We will try to memorize one poem per week starting next week.
Due November 10th
The Creature in the Classroom
It appeared inside our classroom,
at a quarter after ten,
it gobbled up the blackboard,
three erasers and a pen,
It gobbled teacher's apple
and it bopped her with the core.
"How dare you!, she responded.
"You must leave us ... there's the door."

The Creature didn't listen
but described an arabesque
as it gobbled all her pencils,
seven notebooks and her desk.
Teacher stated very calmly,
"Sir! You simply cannot stay,
I'll report you to the principal
unless you go away!"

But the thing continued eating,
it ate paper, swallowed ink,
as it gobbled up our homework
I believe I saw it wink
Teacher finally lost her temper.
"Out!" she shouted at the creature.
The creature hopped beside her
and GLOPP ... it gobbled teacher.

Due October 27
Eat It- It's Good For you!
"Eat it - it's good for you!"
That makes me mad.
How can something good for you
Taste so bad?
"Try it. You'll like it."
I know that's a lie.
I know I won't like it
So why should I try?
"Just take a nibble.
Just one little taste."
What good is a nibble?
The rest goes to waste.
Eggplant is icky.
Spaghetti is fine.
Why can't they eat their food
And let me eat mine?
Due October 15th
My Brother Shaved His Teddy Bear
My brother shaved his Teddy Bear about a year ago,
he did a very thorough job and stripped it head to toe.
He acted sort of suddenly, entirely on a whim,
it sounds a bit unusual...
it's normal though for him.
'Before my brother shaved it,
it was quite a handsome bear,
but now it looks pathetic
and appears beyond repair.
Its fur was soft and velvety,
luxurious and long.
He thought it would grow back again-
it looks like he was wrong.
(Due  October  7th)
Substitute Teacher
Today we had a substitute.
She wasn't sweet.
She wasn't cute.
Her hair could scare a ghastly ghost.
Her breath could turn bread into toast.
She barely fit inside the door
And looked much like a dinosaur.
Each time she spoke the windows shook,
And when she read she broke the book.
She didn't have a lesson plan
But walked like an orangutan.
And if someone would misbehave,
Her screams could start a tidal wave.
But if you think that SHE'S a creature,
Wait till you meet our REGULAR teacher.

Freddie (Due September 29th)
I don't like doing homework,
I know that it will bore me.
But now I am much happier
'Cause Freddie does it for me!

He greets me at the door each day
When I come home from school.
He just can't wait to read my books-
I think that's pretty cool!

I give him all my homework,
Like history and math.
And when he's done I give him
A nice warm bubble bath!

My grades are so much better now,
Which makes my parents glad.
Freddie is the smartest dog
That I have ever had!

Teacher, Teacher
(due September 22)
Teacher, teacher, pick me please,
I know the name is Hercules.
Ask me, Ask me, just this once,
I'll prove to you I'm not a dunce.
My hand, my hand, is waving high,
Won't you catch it with your eye?
My heart, my heart, is beating fast,
Just waiting for you to ask.
Me? You picked me?
Wow! Me!
The answer?
Um! Ahh! Oh! Ought!
I think, I think,
Ijust forgot.

I Do Not Wish to Go to School

"I do not wish to go to school,"
insisted Sarah Sue,
" and Mother if you make me,
I will eat a worm or two."

"Do you mean worms like these, my dear?"
her mother firmly said.
"I got them in the garden,
they're extremely long and red.

"They are both the very juiciest
and plumpest Icould find."
"I'm off for school," said Sarah Sue,
"for I have changed my mind!"
