My smile is like a rainbow

Lesson Note: Our second week was all about animals, rhyming, and learning how to compare! Take a look at some of the creative comparisons students wrote, and read a brilliant rhyming poem all about a student’s favorite kind of animal.

Rabbit hop hop

they never want to stop


Bunnies are smaller and faster

you want to catch then you gotta be in a flash


Hares, hares fastest of them all

You think they’re weak cause they’re small


White hares in the cold

still very fast, look at them go


All are fluffy and fast, you’ll be lucky

if you catch one cause they do the dash.
