Poetry Reading

This past Thursday my 2nd graders AKA the twins had a poetry read at school.  They both did a great job memorizing and saying their poems.

Lucas was the first kids of the whole grade to perform. 
His poem was "Nine Mice"
Nine Mice on tiny tricycles
went riding on the ice,
they rode in spite of warning signs,
they rode despite advice

The signs were right, the ice was thin,
in half a trice, the mice fell in,
and from their chin down to their toes
those mice entirely froze.

Nine mindless mice, who paid the price,
are thawing slowly by the ice
still sitting on their tricycles
…nine white and shiny micicles

Austin had to wait a bit longer to say his poem.  He was about in the middle of the program.  He also did a great job. 
His poem was "Five Little Firefighters"

Five little firefighters all in a row,
One, two, three, four, five they go!
Hop on the engine with a shout,
Quicker than a wink, the fire is out
