Acrostically Yours

For our 15th sessions, Swift 2nd graders sat on the rugs in their classrooms, and put on their imagination hats while I read aloud from Rob Gonsalvez’s Imagine a World. Students marveled to see images that seemed to change from one thing to another right before their eyes. “Is that book magic?” one student asked. At their desks, students read Crystal D. Giles acrostic poem, “Dimples,” before writing their own poems. Enjoy!

A Beautiful Day
by Alana S.

A person seeing a rainbow with joy

Better than a bumble bee
Everyone feels like they’re flying into the soft leaves on trees whssss
Angle near an apple tree falling down
Up seeing the crabs snap snap
Turtles flabbing in the sea
I am seeing all the nature 
Fish are showering with water
Up seeing the crabs snap snap
Love seeing all the nature

Day with all kinds of flowers
A person full of happiness
You and me know not everything is perfect but the world is successful

Soccer Game
by Aiden M.

Swishing feet and ball
On the field
Crossing shoes
Colors black and white
Each player gifted with talent
Ravenous players

Game started
A goal for each team
Excited experience


Soccer Game
by Shreyash C.

Sphere shaped ball
Oval looking
Can get tired
Cash paying sport
Entering more players
Ramping speed

Games being recorded
A striker for each game
Made from professionals
Entertains people


by Mishika S.

Me in the sunset
In the deep blue sea
Sleeping in raindrops
Happiness in my soul
Igloos in the dark of the cold
Kites flying all over the sky
Angels looking over us


by Dennis G.

Monly as a green path
On the bike trail as a
Necklace made out of coins
Every strip of money can be
Yummy like green frosting
