Poetry is a wonderful way to connect with children and their lives. These vignettes form such vivid portraits I feel as if I now personally know the 'characters' who my students love!
My Grandma I see my Grandma jumping into a tree and coming back down again. I hear amazing singing I smell beautiful lipstick I feel soft blankets wrapping around me. I taste lemonade with ice. My grandma makes me laugh! -Georgia K
My Dad (there were lovely lines written about Mum and Louis too!)
I see the wheels moving on my Powerwing
I hear the stones on the concrete rattling
I smell the dust fling behind me
I feel happy and contented.
I like jogging with Dad.
My Monopoly Champion Dad I see him fixing the car I hear the engine burning I smell the gasful fumes I feel the hot car I love fixing the car with Dad. -Jake
My Cousin I see her running to me I hear her heart when I put my ear to her chest I smell hot cookies when I cook with her I feel happy when she picks me up and spins me around. I love my cousin. -Georgia S
My Dad I see my Dad on his DS ixl I hear my Dad fishing I feel my Dad giving me a hug I taste the dinner made by Dad. My Dad is fun to play with. -Jordie

My Dad I see a hermit crab I hear the waves I smell fish and chips I feel the wind I taste lobster. I love going to the beach with Dad. -Patrick
