Poetry Friday: Somewhere Today

IMG_1077

Head over to Amy at The Poem Farm for more poetry today.  Thanks, Amy.

September 21 was International Peace Day.  For some classes, I read Somewhere Today A Book of Poetry by Shelley Moore Thomas. Students from two classes wrote a poem based on the book.

Somewhere Today

Somewhere today
a teacher is reading to students
Somewhere today
a brother is helping someone ride a bike
Somewhere today
a mom is planting flowers
Somewhere today
everyone is sitting and being responsible and respectful
Somewhere today
a mom is fixing old toyS
Somewhere today
children are in class, listening and mailing books
Somewhere today
someone is selling food to support people
Somewhere today
someone is using a punching bag instead of hitting people
Somewhere today
someone is planting trees to make the world a better place
The world is a better place
by helping others.

by Mrs. Pardue’s First Grade Class

Somewhere Today

Somewhere today
someone is feeding the world
Somewhere today
people are donating their stuff to help with disasters
Somewhere today
toys are being delivered to children who don’t have them
Somewhere today
someone is writing a letter to a friend who is old
Somewhere today
someone is taking care of their pet
Somewhere today
someone is singing a song

by Mrs. Tewinkel’s Second Grade Class.

  1. I love the sweet hope of these poems. They make me miss my 1/2 teaching days. Somewhere today someone has fallen into the pages of a book and into a lifelong love story.

  2. Somewhere today
    a librarian
    is making the world
    more peaceful
    one book
    at
    a
    time.

    Thank you, Jone. Off to order this one.
    Peace. x
