A Teacher’s List: Things A Teacher Will Say in the Classroom

In April, my students and I began working on our poetry chapbooks. For one of the poems, we wrote a list poem. List poems have always been fun, for they can rhyme or not, and they can pretty much be about anything.

Things:

to do waiting for a bus

kids say to their parents

you should have done

wish you would have done

that make you feel smart, special, tall…

you find in a grocery store, in your brother’s bedroom…

you hear on a playground

You get the idea, so each year, I enjoy doing the chapbooks along with my kiddos…so here is my playlist of the week….

A Teacher’s List: Things A Teacher Will Say in the Classroom

  • Good morning class,
  • How is you day?
  • If you don’t work,
  • A price you’ll pay.
  • Do not talk,
  • Or even sneeze.
  • No, you may not,
  • Do as you please!
  • Do your work,
  • And write your name.
  • No, this is not,
  • Some kind of game.
  • Being good is a must,
  • Or another student
  • Will bite the dust!
