Our Monthly Poems for November

Grade 1 Poem

Autumn’s Here, Winter’s Coming

Autumn is the time of year when changes are all around,
Leaves change colours, fall from trees and land on the ground.
We like to rake them into piles and jump in them for fun,
Autumn’s cooler and shorter days tell us summer time is done.
Farmers harvest the last of their crops, winter is coming soon,
If you listen carefully, you can hear the final call of the loon.
Many animals are finding dens to hibernate through the cold,
Others have begun to migrate south, in flocks of young and old.
Autumn is such a beautiful season with the colours that it brings,
I’ll have to fill my birdfeeder up for those creatures with wings.
Fall is here, but winter is coming, the cold winds tell us so,
It’s time to dress ourselves up warm from our heads to our toes.

Grade 2 Poem

Animals
By Mr. Warman

The many types of animals are so wild and so cool,
Reptiles and other animals are what we'll learn about at school.
Mammals such as beavers, have hair coming out of their skin,
Reptiles like snakes and alligators have scales to begin.
Some mammals and most reptiles sleep for winter, or hibernate,
Most birds and some mammals move around or migrate.
Animals can be sorted by mammals, retiles, or fish,
There can also be birds, insects, or crustaceans if you wish.
Some lay eggs or have live births or skeletons on the outside,
Others have feathers or fur covering them or skeletons on the inside.
Some animals are extinct, endangered are many others, 
It's time that we remember they're like our sisters and our brothers.
Animals are so amazing to research and learn about,
There's a lot to do to keep them safe,
I'll remember without a doubt.

September's Monthly Poems

Grade 1 Poem

All About Me



I am so special because I am me,
I have two eyes so I can see.
I have a nose so I can smell,
I have ears so I can hear as well.
I have a mouth to eat and taste, 
I have two hands so I can paste.
I have two feet so I can walk,
I have a mouth so I can talk.
I can feel with my skin,
It hurts me when I hit my shin.
I like myself because I am me,
I am so special, you can see.

Grade 2 Poem

Me, Myself and I

Me, myself, and I, how I wish that I could fly,
I have two arms, I move up and down, how I try and try.
I think about my life and how I came to be,
I have mom and dad, it’s true, I have a family.
There are a lot of things I like and some that I do not,
I’m thankful for my family and everything that I’ve got.
I have made many friends, that will last for a long, long time,
I’ll grow up, make good choices, and never commit a crime.
Making good choices means thinking with my brain,
It means using common sense, not forgetting in the rain.
I’m glad that I am who I am, as part of my family tree,
I’ll take every chance I’m given to be the best that I can be.

Grade One Poem

Autumn Changes Poem

Orange, yellow and red,
Leaves fall down and make a bed.
Rake them into a great big pile,
Play and jump in them for a while.
Longer nights and cooler days,
Winter is coming, it is on the way.
Time to wear our winter jackets,
Put away our tennis rackets.
Animals storing food away,
Making dens for a winter day.
Fall is upon us and winter is near,
Winds are blowing can you hear?
