I dream and dream and dream….

2nd graders at Swift are so imaginative and dreamy and kind! Students are bringing so much excitement to writing their own poems, that it is difficult to select only three or four poems to publish per lesson. I am cheating a little, and publishing five poems by students who are having a poem published for the first time!

During our 4th lesson we talked about dreams – especially daydreams and sleeping dreams.

I wish about?
Samidha D.

I dream I had my own makeup set
I dream I would be very beautiful with that makeup
I dream I know how to put on makeup
I dream I can take a photo and send it to the beauty salon by putting on my makeup
I dream I could put on makeup and dance then put it on youtube then get a 1000 likes
I dream I could put on my makeup and walk outside
I dream I could be so pretty that people can’t stand it
I dream I could put on makeup and sing
I dream I could put on makeup during school

I had a dream that I was rich and cool
I had a dream I was in Las Vegas
I had a dream that I had a bike
I had a dream I saw God
I had a dream that I had a new fishing rod
I had a dream that I had a ball
I had dream that I met David Dobrick.


Dreams Of Me
Gegeenkhuslen U.

I dreamed about my brother waking me up for school
It was a funny dream.
When I woke up my big brother was sleeping.
Then I ate some lunch.
When I was done with lunch I watched a video.
Then my big brother woke up and saw me watching a video.

I dreamed I was on a mountain
I dreamed I was on a cool car
I dreamed I was on a roof of a house
I dreamed I was 70 years old
I dreamed I can play fortnite all day
I dreamed I will be a teacher


The beach dream
By Genesis O.

I dreamed that I was on the beach
I dreamed that I had a fish floating suit
I dreamed that there were a lot of people
I dreamed I bought an ice cream
I dreamed we took our dog to the beach
