I Wish

I’m so excited to be working with an amazing group of 2nd and 3rd grade girls at Clissold. They have so much to say! For this session we talked about all of the wild wishes we would make and what it would look like if they came true.


I Wish

by Chloe C

3rd grade

I wish that I had a class pet.

It could be a fish or a

lizard, it will not matter

if we got a fish that

would be my classes favorite

wish. If we got a lizard then

I would want to name it

wizard. If we got a cat, which

we probably won’t, it will scare

away the rats. If we get a

dog it would jump over

a log. It does not matter

I just want a class pet.
