I gave you 24 hours to come up with a poem to tell the story of the giant teddy bear I saw in a car. I asked you to use a good dollop of imagination. Thanks for sending all your poems in at such short notice. I really enjoyed reading them.
I especially loved the stories in the poems that Gemma and Daniel wrote and the extra dollop of imagination they used. Their poems were helped by really strong detail that made the imaginary story come alive. Gemma tried a limerick which worked well. I liked all the ‘h’ words in Daniel’s poem. I wonder if Daniel has been to Hawaii? Great job!
I am sending a book to Gemma this time.
Ted’s Hawaiian Holiday
Once upon a lunchtime
Ted got really excited
He was going on holiday to Hawaii
Hordes of pineapples
His parents picked him up from school
He waved to all his friends
Said goodbye to his teacher
And promised in two weeks he’d be back again
Two weeks later
Room 26 got a postcard that read
“I will not be back”
Love from Ted
He was staying in Hawaii
‘til Christmas time
Because Hawaii is soooooooo awesome
Leaving early would be a crime.

The story of a big brave bear
Why is a bear sitting there
Without a care while people stare?
He just got married
And is waiting to be carried
Up to school for tell and share!
