This week in literacy, my students are reading Roald Dahl‘s Revolting Rhymes. Today we read his take on the Cinderella story- written in couplets. I thought it was only appropriate to transfer this knowledge to my blog. So here goes!
After hitting snooze for 10 minutes, I awoke still tired and hazy
I crawled out of bed, got dressed and fed but my breakfast was really quite lazy
Müsli, dried berries, and banana covered with milk.
I was off to work in a hurried rush
Stomping my boots in the icy slush
My students had pockets loaded with pennies so weighty
to send to Doctor’s Without Borders in Haiti
They’re giving their allowance, their savings and time
making the level of our class collections climb
By 11 I couldn’t wait, I was hungry again
I washed my hands and tore open a ripe manderine
Lunch was later had in such a rush
that taking pictures of my food would make me blush
So the day continued- social studies, computers, and without further adieu
fruit snack and reading and these grapes, times two.
Once the home bell rang, my work was not done
I had a staff meeting that was really not fun
Exhausted and weary I opened my apartment door
Took off my boots, dropped my bags to the floor
I ran to my kitchen to mix up a snack
Toast, almond butter, agave, and cinnamon attack!
After about an hour it was time for dinner
so I went to a classic- sounds gross but it’s a winner
Baked potatoes with “tuna” salad baked beans and some greens
left me feeling quit full, one of my stand bye cuisines
Now well fed and updated, it’s time to read
Sleep well dear friend wherever you are
I hope your Wednesday is the best day of the week so far!
