As Spring fast approaches here in Chicago it was nice to take a moment to think about winter. Our 2nd and 3rd graders wrote a few sentences about the arctic season and then exchanged them, and used each other’s words as inspiration for their own poems. Here’s what they came up with!
The Wish List
My favorite thing to do in winter
is have a snowball fight.
Snow feels like crunching outside. Yea!
Hot chocolate tastes like marshmallows. Yea!
Make a snow angel. Yea!
Stay inside where it’s warm. Yea!
And get warm and watch TV. Yea!
My Life in Winter
Winter is not the best thing,
but it’s more fun than the other months
and you can do a lot of things.
But the thing I like most
is hanging out with my family,
and if I could change winter it would be
Winter is cold but still fun
If I could change anything in
winter, it would be, not being so cold.
Hot chocolate tastes like coffee,
walking on the snow feels like ice cream.
Winter is very cold but
In your house it’s warm. I like
to stay in at home. School in
winter is fun, we have winter break,
winter is so fun.
