A Poem by Michelle (5 years)

August 19, 2015

Michelle is one kid that totally blew me away. She is only five but knows exactly what she wants and isn’t afraid of holding an opinion. She was quite something. I remember as she wrote her poem, she chose the word “appear” and wrote it with a single P. I stopped myself from being a grammar Nazi, wanting her to concentrate first on expressing herself. She however hesitated on her next word and after a thought, went back and added a second P.

The following is her poem:

A poem for Teacher

His name is teacher James
He teaches in class three
He is tall, he is dark
He teaches science

He says the magic words
When you tell him “One shilling!”
He makes the money
Appear from his hands

By Michelle (5 years)
