My Mom

I love my mom

Because she will always love me

On and on

I will always love her

Till she’s gone!

 

I love my mom because 

Even though she doesn’t buy

Me the things I want 

That’s okay!! 

Only thing I want from her 

Is to stay

“In My Heart”

Anjole Leveron

J.Sierra Elementary School

 

In my heart is fulled with a lot

from my family and friends to all the things I love to do

In my heart is art

I love to color and draw

in my heart is dance

the way I move my body makes me glad

in my heart is cooking

I Found a Rock

By Justin Rubio

E.R. Taylor

5th Grade

 

I found a rock it was pretty heavy so

When I picked it up I fell on my 

Knee it hurt but I didn’t care

 Did I mention it was gold and shiny

 

I found Simon he had a 

Diamond it was as big as a bike

He gave it to me for that shiny rock

 

I found a found but there

Were arms holding it, I inserted

 the diamond and it gave me the fossil.

 

I went into the pueblo

And traded it for a treasure chest.

I used to be . . .

By Stella-Mae Schmidt

Tenderloin Community School

 

I used to be a piece of dirt, and now I am a flower 

filled with beauty everyday and with love every hour

 

I used to used to be a stranded branch but now I am a tree 

but instead of looking down I smile with glee

 

I used to be a basketball but now I am a player

I can do a slam-dunk jumping up in the air

 

I used to be asleep but now I am wake

And see everything, the real from the fake

"The Elements"
By Angelika De Castro

--Dedicated to the Philippines--

Fire

Red, orange, yellow the color of the flame.
Red, orange, yellow easy to blame.
Hot not cold, smoky and bold
Fire is hot, it can burn gold
