I Dream Of A Bounce House: 2nd Grade Dreams @ Darwin!

This week in 2nd grade poems: Dream Worlds! The students and I discussed the playfulness of dreams, and how we could use the comparisons, sounds and other skills we had already worked on to make them come alive. Enjoy!

Crazy Forest
Jeremiah L.

I was walking in
the forest I saw a
big dinosaur it was
sweaty i touched it and
I like it and it tasted
like syrup and I saw here
the coconuts were dogs
and the castle was
made out of hair
the branch on the
tree is a chocolate
bar there was a baseball
team on chocolate grass

Uriel C.

I dream that it was
raining popcorn and
I was eating the popcorn
I dream i was famous
I dream I went to
8 grand I dream that
it was raining money!
I dream my
friends chocolate and
I ate it up
I dream the show
was popcorn
I dream the school was
chocolate and I eat the school

Doniven R.

I was a gorilla in
the jungle. Then a lion
came to the jungle. We
fight and then I win
and I turn into
half gorilla and half
lino. A bald eagle came
and then we fight. I win
and I turn into half
gorilla, half lion, and half
eagle. I saw a chocolate
rabbit and ate it. Then I
turned into a rabbit.

I dream about paint
I dream about decorating a Christmas
tree and Thanksgiving
I dream about that I was in candy land
I dream about that there was a diamond.
I dream that there was a bounce house.

My Dream

I fell to sleep at 8:00 o’clock
I was dreaming of ice mating
and the ice was made of
colors, there was an ice
slide of colors, it was fun
I woke up and was
happy all night

Dream of Nightmare
Jack R.

I see 1 nightmare on the forest
I see 2 tigers in the nightmare
I see 3 pens were in a nightmare
I see 4 tigers were in the school
I see 5 wolfs saying awooooooo!
