Big Ideas

At the start of the week, we were thinking small; later in the week, we were thinking big! The 4th graders read Before the Rains by Kim Stafford and then wrote poems envisioning the world they want to live in.

My World 
By Adore 

I would change the
world I will get money
every friday eat pizza
every monday be the
teacher every tuesday
make everybody name Adore
own stores on sunday
on wednesdays
I get to be the mayor
I would cancel bad people.


My World 
By Deziah

My world would be
about helping people
I help people by helping them
cross the street and
help them get stuff from the store
help them get on the bus
and I gave to a homeless person
then she got a job. <3



By Taraji 

Nature is your home we live in
Nature is grass, water, wild life
it can even be the ocean, mountain.

My nature feels safe,
everyday life and stuff that makes sense

Nature is what I design, dream in life
Nature has rain, clouds, sun, moon, and mist.

Nature is full of surprises, fun, sharing, and a place with
peace and more joy.


My World 
By Kayiona

My world is got to be car
I love get in a car
I love car
I be on my phone and
I be feeling sleepy
In a car go bye


My World (Food is Delicious) 
By E’Moni 

Food taste so good
it is amazing
I don’t know why I
love food I just do.
If everything was free
I would be going to the store
every day. all day. the end.
