an extra handful of imagination

 

I was very excited to get a selection of imagination poems from Room 4 at Pauatahanui School in Wellington because when I was training to be a teacher a very very very long time ago I did my sole-charge section at this school. I was in charge of the whole class for a whole month before I headed out to my own class the next year. It was such a lovely school in a lovely setting.

Room 4 missed the deadline but I felt I just had to break my rule for them and post a few poems. I loved the playful rhyme, the acrobatic words and the zing-pop imaginations. The class had fun writing these!

The students are Y3-4, aged 7-9.

 

 

What if dogs were as damp as hogs?

What if clogs when on dogs?
What if hogs were as big as dogs?
What if hogs were as smart as dogs?
What if mats were as smart as cats?

What if cats were as scary as bats?
What if my cat had a hat?
What if a bat ate my cat?
What if a fly was as big as a fox?

What if John Key lived in a box?
What if I had really stinky socks?
What if I had lots of clocks?

All of this could be true

I just have to believe and you do too!
