Winter Wishing

During my 2nd sessions at Kozminski,  4th graders discussed list-making and wish lists; while wrote 5th graders looked at Nikki Giovanni’s “winter poem,” before writing their own wintry stanzas. Bbrrrrr!

4th Grade

by Cymir W.

I wish to be a gamer
It would make me feel so joyful
I wish I could have kids when I grow up!
I wish I could buy subway everyday
I wish I could have my own gaming company with products that you need to game

I wish I would have a giant house
I wish I could buy my mom anything she wants
I wish I can be famous
I wish I have a billion dollars
I wish all the violence would stop

I wish I had a Lamborghini green and clean
it would be sweet
I would ride it out in the summer
While having LOUD music on!


Puppies and all my stuff
By Micaela A.

I wish I had lots of love
I wish I had a big house
I wish I had lots of toys
I wish I had the best life
I wish I had better sleep

I wish I had books
I wish I had a big van too

My Big Wishes
by Kaliyah K.

I wish I lived in a mansion
and be giga rich and famous on YouTube
and have a iPhone and go to Urban Air
for my tenth birthday and get all of the
Nikes in the world. I wish I had a
BMW and a Tesla. I want to make
clothes like my big sister. I want all of
the Babysitter’s Club books.

Things I like about winter
By Tariq L.

The winter is very cold
When I get in a snowball fight 
I shiver
and every time I leave my gloves my hands freeze
I try to make snowmen but I always want to knock them over

Hot chocolate makes me feel hot, like the sun.
I always wear extra warm jackets so I don’t catch a cold.
The clouds are dark gray and the ground is very slippery
Don’t trip over!


By Aiden F.

I hate the winter
we can fall and
when we get out of the house
cars are foggy and we can’t see out
and it is so cold that I don’t like going outside
and it snows on your car
you have to get it off
and sometimes it’s wet!


Winter Poem
By De’Kirra P.

My favorite thing about the winter
is that you can spend more quality time with friends and family,
and you can drink hot chocolate. I also enjoy the winter because
my favorite holiday (Christmas) is in the winter time.

I don’t enjoy the winter when it’s freezing cold outside
and it makes me shiver. I also don’t like when the ground is very wet and slippery
because of the frozen ice

Winter doesn’t have good weather
it’s so cold you have to wear extra layers of clothes
and it can also cause lots of accidents
because of all the frozen ice on the ground from the rain and snow.

The best thing about hot chocolate is it’s very hot
and it’s really good when you
add a couple of marshmallows inside of it.
