“Getting Dreamy”

Do you have a dreamlife? When you fall asleep at night, do you dream? Do you have dreams that are funny, or ridiculous, comforting, or scary? Maybe you are someone who likes to daydream – gazing off into space imagining interesting things to do and places to go. Dreams are what we discussed and wrote about last Friday at Swift Elementary School. We thought about writing a list of dreamy ideas, or writing a poem that tells the story of a dream. Unicorns, candy, gumballs, “pokemon,” “roblox,” and money showed up in many of the students’ poems. Although it was hard to choose from so many great “Dream Poems,” it really made me smile to see so many students getting down to the business of writing!

I Dream
Jackie P.

I dream of gum balls falling out of the sky.
I dream that me and my friends got
to do whatever we want in school
and we get to touch anything
and that I could be the teacher and if that
wouldn’t happen then I wish that there was
no school for 10,000 years.  And that I didn’t
have to go to work and my parents do
and they gave me their money.

I dreamed that I was on a unicorn
I dreamed that I was sitting on clouds
I dreamed every day was summer
