Dog Man is an epic hero

Our hero gets distracted

Got a little kitten friend

A tale of two kitties

The kitten lives with Dog Man in his dog house

An evil cat gets angry

Li’l Petey makes friends

In jail Petey and Flippy

Escapes from jail again

Some things never change.

Syllables in poems only sometimes matter

Yesterday we watched a livestream presentation by Polar Bears International. The topic was Spring Extravaganza: Seals, Cubs, Mating, and More.

I asked students to write about Polar Bears. They got to choose the format.

Polar Bear Acrostic by Hailey

Polar bears awake from hibernation in Spring

Out of their cave they look for tasty food

Lots of polar bears mate and have cubs in Spring

All polar bears like to eat seals

Ready to catch a seal when the seal takes a breath

Baby polar bears always follow their mother

Every polar bear eats half their weight

A polar bear mother takes good care of her cubs

Really hungry after hibernation

A Paragraph About Polar Bears by Joshua

Polar bears are very good hunters since they live in the Arctic. Their favourite food is seal. The polar bear hunting strategy is to lie on the seal breathing hole. When the seal comes up for air, the polar bears pounce on the seal wasting little energy then eat the seal. I learned so much about polar bears. They are so cool.

Ocean by Nathan

It arrived when the Earth arrived in the solar system

Gives life to us and water to animals

Seventy to sixty percent of the world is water

By giving us water

It leaves by evaporation.

Cherry Blossoms by Fabiana

Cherry blossoms arrive in Spring

They can be part of something beautiful, like a necklace or a bracelet

They can be in houses

You can take off the petals to make something

They fall off trees and die.
