Final Exam Tanka

End of the quarter
We all have final exams
You have many tests
I have many tests to grade
Teachers hate finals week, too.

A Short Violent Poem

My purse he did grab.
He wanted to nab.
I gave him a stab.
It gave him a scab.
I left in a cab.

Baboon, Balloon, Bassoon

Furry, furry, big baboon
Would you like a green balloon?
Or would you rather play bassoon?

A Carrot for a Parrot

I picked a carrot.
I will prepare it.
I plan to share it
With a big green parrot.

I met the child.
He seemed quite mild,
But then he smiled.
He was very wild.

To confront the President.

Strange Gorilla

I saw a strange gorilla
Who was drinking sasprilla
Right out of the bottle.
It began to make him waddle.

Messed up Nursery Rhyme

Little Boy Blue
Go blow your nose
Your nostrils are running
All over your toes.
That nap you were taking
Is because you were sick
So take two aspirin
And call the doctor quick.

Place Value


I hate regrouping
Can't the numbers stay in line?
I hate place value

My Cat Owns Me

It's hard to write with a cat on my arm.
She thinks she is not doing any harm,
But it's hard to write with a cat on my arm.

I played during math.
I played during reading.
I wonder why I am
Sitting here at recess.
