Do you know what I love?

After reading and discussing Eloise Greenfield’s poem, “Honey, I Love,” we talked about people and things that we love, including tastes, sights, sounds, smells, textures and feelings.  Then Swift 2nd graders wrote their own I Love Poems.

flying like a plane. I like to hear poems. I like
to hear magic like flying to space to see the
planets. I want to go to the moon. I really

with my friends. I love music.
