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. :-)
