Poetry Thursday & Calling Out
I found this anonymously written poem at the TeacherHelpers Website. It’s an interesting take on a child who is trying to do the write thing.
My teacher asked a question
and I gave it lots of thought;
Then I slowly raised my hand
to do just as I’d been taught.
Then someone yelled the answer out,
and I felt aggravated;
I wished that he had raised his hand
like me — I patiently waited!
I just found Poetry Thursday last week and just learned that it’s ending in a couple of weeks!!! At least there’s still Poetry Friday!
