National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. We will be reading and writing lots of poetry in observance of this special month. This week middle school buddies came to our classroom to read poems to us. We are also learning poems during Morning Meeting. We have been practicing Spring Will Be Pretty by David Crawley. Have your 1D Learning Lion read this poem to you!

Spring Will be Pretty
By David Crawley

Spring will be pretty.
Just give it a week.
When flowers are blooming down by the creek.
Bees will be buzzing as trees start to bud.
But for the moment I'm covered with mud.
Snow has been melting, since winter is through,
Replacing the whiteness with puddles of ooze.
Next thing I knew, I stepped out of my shoes!
Mud on my ankles and mud on my clothes.
I stumbled face-first and got mud up my nose.
Spring will be pretty, but I must confess,
The first days of spring are a muckety mess!
