Poetry Friday: Poison Ivy

March 18th, 2011

This week we have another student poem by Trini, a student in Emelie Parker’s first grade classroom. Emelie and Tess Pardini are the authors of “The Words Came Down!” English Language Learners Read, Write, and Talk Across the Curriculum, K-2. Poor Trini had a terrible case of poison ivy and she used the experience during poetry unit and revised her work for several days. Here is the end product:

Poison Ivy

Poison ivy on my neck
Poison ivy on my leg
Poison ivy on my hand
And I don’t like it.

Poison ivy on my finger
Poison ivy on my side
Poison ivy on my ear
Yucky, yucky, yucky

Poison ivy on my other hand
Poison ivy on my cheek
Poison ivy everywhere
And I hate it.
