Honey, We Love

For our 8th sessions at Swift, we read “Honey, I Love” by Eloise Greenfield. We counted the poem’s stanzas, looked for all of the rhymes, and talked about our favorite sections. We brainstormed lists of people, places, and things that we love and do not love – before writing our own poems.

I Love Poem
by Shanty G.

I love the sea, I love my cats
I love animals, I love books and
I love the sunset and I
love the night.

What I do not love is people that
do not like the sea and
I do not like the people
that do not love or like animals.

I love the mall because
its has stores and it
has toys and books and
I also love my toys
because I play with my toys.
what I do not like
is Mass. I have to stay
in Mass 40 mins.

Something I love is running with friends
the sound of the air
and I like to go fast
like birds

I also love my bird Coco
and reading and anime movies
and I love drinking hot chocolate
trying new things, and going to school
and eating and helping.

I love Chicago because it is
beautiful and I get surprised
by the tall buildings
and it gets me happy
I do not like bad dogs!

Things I love and Do not love!
by KeAndre W.

I love my nintendo
because it brings me
joy and

I love my family
because they give
me hugs and even
more joy and

I do not like or love
bad dreams and
bad stuff happening
on the news and
I do not love that

I love the smell of flowers in the
summer. in the garden their smell
makes me feel happy.

but what I don’t love is books that have
a lot of pages. I have to read for
1000 times.

Kritisha K.

I love my family
they make me happy
we play together

and I love Harry Potter
I like the movie more than
the book
I love the characters

I do not love shots
shots hurt
but I like doctors

Honey, We Love

We love our brothers, sisters, Moms,
and Dads
We love when we’re not mad
We love meeting a new lad
We love the taste of ramen
and visiting friends
We wish we could grow dreds

We do not love homework, or people
being mean
Some of us don’t like snow, even
when it’s clean
We don’t love bad dreams
