Our Alligator Pie Poems

Last week we wrote some class poems, using the Alligator Pie (by Dennis Lee) pattern.
Here's what the class came up with!

Chocolate bar
Chocolate bar
If I don't get one
I think I'll break my car.
Give away my ice-cream cake
Give away my star,
But don't give away
My chocolate bar!

Apple sauce
Apple sauce
If I don't get some
I think I'll be cross.
Give away my Christmas tree
Give away my moss,
But don't give away 
My apple sauce!

Pink pig pie
Pink pig pie
If I don't get some
I think I'm going to cry!
Give away my fairy cake
Give away my tie
But don't give away
My pink pig pie!

Purple cake
Purple cake
If I don't get some
I think I'm going to break.
Give away my big fat cat
Give away my steak
But don't give away my purple cake!

After spending a few days writing poems together, I had the kids write their own. They're a little hard to read, but I think the kids did a super job!

  3. Very sweet indeed. Hi Barb I have had a break from blogging and boy have had a few changes take place. I'm not teaching this year. My principal took 12 months leave at the last minute and I was asked to step in. Let's just say I've been busy. Looking forward to blogging again this weekend. :-)
