What We Love

This week in Ms. Murray’s 4th grade class, we read “Honey, I Love” by Eloise Greenfield and talked about all the things we love and don’t love. Some students noticed that the poem was similar to an ode, but instead of writing about just one thing, the author wrote about several things and celebrated each one and it’s unique qualities. Students then created a list of likes and dislikes. We talked about the similarities and differences between the things we loved, and how to create meaningful details about each thing they wrote down. After creating their list, students picked at least 5 things and got to work on writing an “I Love Poem” of their own. Enjoy this week’s poets!

Christian G.J.

People places things

I love. My mom, my dad, 

my cousin, God, the beach, 

my house, candy, I love summer

break, Christmas, my birthday. 

Things I don’t love. 

Going to school, doing homework 

after my birthday.

Yo Amo

Ailyn C. 

Yo amo mi mama y mi papa porque

son bien buenos y me cuidan muy

bien y me compran lo que yo

quiero y siempre me apoyan. 

Siempre cuando estoy triste 

intentan hablar con migo, o 

me saben decir que paso o 

si te sientes bien. Yo amo mi familia

porque siempre me apoyan mucho. 

Yo amo la pizza porque tiene

queso con pepperoni, carne, y 

muchos condimentos, yo amo la

comida Mexicana, amo los tacos

de carne, y los tacos que son bien 

ricos y la comida china lo que 

comen es rica. 


Lucciano U. 

Amo, amo cuando 

veo anime como Naruto

Dragonball o Demon Slayer

Amo, amo y quiero a

mis amigos, como si

son familia

No amo cuando tengo que

hacer muchos mandados

de mi mama

No me gusta cuando 

molestan o hablan mal

de mis amigos y familia

I Love

Wendy C. 

I love family, friends, dogs, a whole

lot of things.


going to my cousin’s house and cats

Roblox, slime, and Robux

But I dislike lots of other



vegetables, and beans, but I like

Mexican food. 

I dislike not having roblox, and slime, and robux

I like my cousin’s dogs, and dislike

not seeing them and not going to 

his house

I also dislike fake friends and worst of

all, I dislike death.
