Wonderful Wishes of Darwin Elementary

This week the 2nd grade students at Darwin Elementary wrote poems about their wishes–both wishes that could come true, and those that just fun to fantasize about. We had a blast!

Mr. Posthlewait

I wish I had candy
I wish dinosaurs
were not extinct
I wish I could have
all the reptiles

buy a dog.

I wish my dad could
buy a pony.


I Wish

Everything is Real and Not Real
Oivia Z.

I wish that monkeys could
fly. I wish that I could
eat candy all day long.
I wish I could be famous.
I wish that I could turn
my brother into a minion.


I Wish
Jaden P.

I wish it was raining pizza
I wish had three cats
I wish my book bag was full of candy
I wish I had a trophy
I wish I was rich
I wish I could go to school every day
I wish I could go to the movies
I wish I could go to a farm
I wish I could go to the minion movie


I Wish
Maya D.

I wish for a unicorn giving candy
I wish for candy
I wish for a trophy rainbow
I wish for pizza
I wish for a party
