A recipe for me…

What are the ingredients that makeup who you are? A gallon of sassyness, infinite bowls of Kung-fu kicks, 10 cups of fortnite and snacks. This week in Ms. Murray’s 4th grade class we talked about all the qualities, habits, and feelings that make us unique and then created recipe poems explaining how to put it all together. I’m sure you will find this week’s poems just as funny, unique, and imaginative as I did. Enjoy!
