What the walls know… Personification @ ALS Elementary

The fourth graders investigated their classroom for objects to personify. If the marker suddenly came alive, what would it do? What would it say? We cast a magic spell over the room and brought these normally quiet objects to life!

A scissors eats paper
A scissors has sharp teeth
A scissors smells like metal

A scissors would dance
A scissors is colorful
A scissor would walk
A scissor is like pac man


The Mysterious Car
Armando T.

The car runs and goes quick
The car walks and goes slow

The car stands still and waits
The car runs but never goes

It waits for you until you go
The car walks until it runs

The car says “can you go”
The car says “but go slow”

A marker that dances
invites you to a party
A pencil that does not
dance is super mean

And if you invite the marker
He will be dancing with
you until its morning


Silly Markers
Ivellis F.

This marker is open
when it wants you to use
This marker is closed
you should let go.

Thus marker is bright, as
bright as the sun.
This marker is awesome.
Where did it come from.

This marker is mind, no one
else can use it.
This marker is open, it wants me
to use it.

A wall says: stay back
Another wall says: I love you
And the walls only know how
does it feel
And I think that the walls
feel really still


Giselle V.

The clock has rhythm
The clock helps people
The clock passes time
The clock has no secrets
They can talk
Can not walk
The clock can see us
Doing silly things


All About Outside
Daniela R.

My bear reading me a book
The clock telling me the answer
The flag doing the pledge of allegiance
The calendar telling me the date
The projector showing me a move
I see the water bottles talking
The paper shows me what to do

Wind tells me to go fast
by blowing me

Wind sings songs
Wind froze me with
cold wind

Wind says “hi” to me

Wind says “good
morning sir”


Erica H.

Clocks are nice because
They give us the time


Real Madrid
Roberto V.

A soccer ball running fast as a cheetah
A soccer ball running fast as Ronaldo
A soccer ball going as fast as a cat

A soccer ball join fast as a motorcycle
A soccer ball is fast as a shark
A soccer ball is fast as a dolphin


Daisy Q.

A book says “read me.
The book has weird pictures
The book has 3D pictures

The book has a smile on it
The book tastes like a chocolate cake
The book says “stop reading me.”

The book says “hey”
The book says “stop polling me”
The book gets mad
