“Park to-go then space to-go.” – Direction Poems @ Moos Elementary

Today at Moos, we wrote directional poems! We started the day by drawing our houses,  wrote real and imaginary directions to them, and then combined the two types of directions to make our poems! We had fun seeing how we can transport ourselves in different ways.

Chris L.

Skateboard down the mountain.
Land in the snow, dog comes
and licks me. So we do it again
and I name him Sparkey. Sparkey follows
me everywhere. I like it so much, someone
likes him too.


My Way
Fernando B.

Park to-go then space to-go.
School to-go then Uranus to-go.
School-to-work, back, go.
Space-to-straight, go.
Park-to-left, go.
Uranus-to-right, go.


Crazy Directions

Turn right and sing a song.
Turn left and turn in the snow.
Turn right on Mikwaukee and then fly in the air.
Turn right and keep going and sing a song from the 80s.
