We have another great student poem on this Poetry Friday from fourth-grader Kevin, who wrote about being frustrated during a reading activity about character traits. The poem appears in Charles Fuhrken’s recent book, What Every Elementary Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests.
My name is frustrated.
Today was a mad day.
Getting ready for school today, I did not talk to
anyone while eating breakfast.
At recess, I yelled at all my friends and told
everybody to be quiet.
At lunch, I couldn’t eat my lunch because it was
During spelling class, I could not spell any word
because my pencil broke and when I came back
from sharpening it was over.
That is what life is like when your’re frustrated.
