That Night

By, Marie  Gr. 1

That night,

I turned on my light.

A dolphin at night?

What a sight!

This is not right!

My mom is right,

To turn off my light.

At Twilight

By, Nolwenn Gr. 5

At twilight,

I saw bats in flight.

I turned on my flashlight,

Oh, what a sight!

Hundreds of bats flying at night!

They gave me a fright,

Those bats in flight.

I think I might,

Turn off my light.

Grades 1-5 were all able to write fun and creative poems like these. Who knew learning word families could be this much fun?
