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

“I see” 

By Jasmin Barrera

Sanchez Elementary School

 

I see 

I cannot see the world,

but I can see the words

and I can see the light

and I can see the moon

and I can see my mom’s laughs 

and I see the dreams of my father 

and I see my brother’s toys
