What she came up with was very funny – see what you think!
Ha ha ha I feel safe in my big strong house made of straw.
The big bad wolf is outside trying to get inside my door.
I can hear him huffing and puffing trying to blow down my house.
But I’m not worried as he’s no stronger than a mouse.
Hang on? What’s happening? My house is starting to fall down!
Oh no, it’s all gone wrong. I feel such a clown.
It’s all a bit scary Mary. My, that wolf is hairy..
I’ll end up as his dinner today.
Oh how I wish I’d built my house another way.
For his homework this week my 7 y.o. son had to write a poem about the stone age.
After a bit of brain storming about which words he wanted to use and a little help putting it all together he came up with this fantastic acrostic poem.
I thought it was so good, I just had to blog about it!
As explained on readwritethink.org an acrostic poem “uses the letters in a word to begin each line of the poem. All lines of the poem relate to or describe the main topic word”.
Our word was HUNTER.
Hunting Wooly Mammoths to get our dinner.
Using flint spears and axes that we made.
Nearly getting whacked by big tusks as we kill our prey.
The fire cooks the delicious yummy meat.
Eating in our cave wrapped up snug in animal fur.
Recording our lives by painting on the cave walls.
A short poem written by my wife regarding wedding gifts (we needed money for a conservatory, so she wrote this for us to politely ask for money instead)…
We hope not to offend
By writing this request
It’s wedding gifts we’re talking about
As we’re unsure what to say for the best
We’ve got a lovely home full to the brim
More things just won’t fit
So a conservatory is what we hope to build
A place for Samuel to play and for us to sit
So if you’d like to contribute to our fund
A huge thank you is what we would say
Looking forward to seeing you in October
We hope you have a fantastic day!
This is a wedding anniversary poem that my fantastic wife wrote for her parents (i think it was their 40th anniversary?)…
Life seemed easier in the Sixties
Where two people were destined to meet
Him a Chippy and her a Nurse
A romance started which seemed quite sweet
January 1970 arrived
And the couple said “I do”
A life together they started
And soon their family grew
Their first born, a son, arrived
Followed by a daughter after a few years
Their life was happy and complete
Where they shared their hopes and fears
They had a few parties
They had some fun
He loved fast cars
She loved the sun
They travelled about
Lived here and there
Spain, The States, Wellingborough
Oh, that jet-setting pair!
So 40 years together
Congrats! What’s your secret rule or law?
She’s got lots of patience
He watches Utd and shouts “FORE”
So here’s to many more years
Of fun, happiness and laughter
Keep enjoying yourselves
And live happily ever after
