What Do You Remember / Que Recuerdas?: Memory Poems at Darwin

This week at Darwin, we wrote our final poems for this school year. Our focus was things that we remember–whether going to the movies with family, a day at the park eating ice cream, or even just the walk to school every morning. Here’s this week’s featured poets!

Ms. Garcia, 2nd grade, Spanish

Where I Went

I went to the movies
I went to a park with my dad
I went to my aunt’s house
I saw a hammock and
I will sit in that hammock.
I wish my dad could
change his temper
whispering instead
of screaming


el camino para la escuila es dividtido
mi vieja casa te nia 3 cualtos y 2 banos una muy chiquita.
el color esta blanca las al eramuiiiiiii ni cita

the road to the school is divided
my old house you 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms ,very small.
the color is white

La Orquestra

yo fui a la oruquestra con kevin
Jugamos muchos juegos
Cuando llegamos la gustó la música
I cuando llegamos comimos
I comimos takis y sangui
i los divir timos mucho

I went to the orchestra with Kevin
We play many games
When we arrived, the he liked the music
when we arrived we ate
I ate takis and sangui
divided them a lot

Ms. Garcia, 2nd grade, English

I remember that I ride an elephant
and feed it at Thailand
I remember that we was
in a hotel with my family
I remember that I feed
a fish with my aunt


I love it when I see the water
I love when you hug me
I love it when you talk to me
I love it when you play with me.
