1) The boy was fast as a cheetah, but foolish like a donkey.

2) Since I met him today, he was a fox and I was suprised .

3) I wanted to know the secret so I asked, "Could you please get the cat out of the bag?" He said,

4) "My mom made me milkshake magicly,

5) and I drank it.....POOF! I became so clever."

6) On that day, I drank the same milkshake and my brain started dancing.

.........)THE END(...........

I had a green bean,
he was really mean.
He smelled like an elf,
who lived by himself

This poem is weird but cool.

Bavesh, nice work!

Remember it is "LET the cat out of the bag." :) So, you would write, "Could you let the cat out of the bag?"

Carson, Are you saying poems don't have to rhyme? If you are, GOOD POINT! They don't! We are going to begin to work on some of the non-rhyming ones soon! Love the poems you added to our discussion. Don't forget to do your assignment too though!

Love, Mrs. McB

1) The room was as loud as a football stadium.
2) The lion's teeth were daggers.
3) " I have butterflies in my stomach," I said before I was about to do my act in the school talent show.
4) Cranky Clowns Chew Carrots.
5) " HONK HONK," my mom beeped her horn in rage.
6) The bird sang a sweer little toon as the first days of spring arrive.
Quatrain:
I am afraid of a lot of things.
From big scary monsters to small shiny rings.
There is one thing I fear and I fear it the most.
Are you reads to hear,well a big scary ghost.

1.When I play basketball I run like a cheetah.
2. My feet are speed macines.
3.Before the game my dad told me to"Break a leg".
4.Benjamin banks billions.
5."BUZZ BUZZ", The game was over we won.
6.At the end of the game the basketball goal danced.
Quatrain:
I have a dog,
she's like a big hog.
She begs for our food,
putting us in a bad mood.
Here teeth are daggers,
and she walks with a swagger.
In the morning she talks to me,
about the things she likes to see.

1. You are as fast as a racecar.
2. You are a couch potato.
3. Who let the cat out of the bag?
4. Two turtles typing texts.
5. BANG! The gun shot, and the blood spilled everywhere. Then the zombies came out of the grave and started feasting on the flesh of the defenseless puppies. I really hope that doesn't happen.
6. The bird sang in the tree on a Saturday spring morning.

The gray and white kitten was cute
as he played and chewed on my boot.
Then he tugged on my mitten.
He was the cutest little kitten.
