Poetry Friday Word: JUICE!
Maggie is hosting this week for Mona and we all know what a juicy gal she is! I just had to offer you a choral chant I wrote for my Gr. 3 class a few years ago after we studied Dr. Seuss. The kids thought it was really cool and we performed it for the rest of the school in an assembly. Even the Gr. 8's told me they loved it! If there are any teachers or anyone at all who wants to use this, be my guest! Dr. Seuss would approve!
You had the juice!
Yes, we’re talkin’ Dr. Seuss!
You had that Cat from the Hat comin’ back,
You had Sam I am, eating Green Eggs and Ham,
You had Horton Hatchin’ That Egg!
You had us thinkin’ The Thinks We Think,
The ABC’s that really please,
You made Who-ville rock,
And that Fox in the Sock,
You got us reading for the very first time,
And all because of your catchy rhyme!
The nonsense you wrote was full of fun
And in no time at all, the book was done.
Some words were big,
Some words were small,
We loved them so much
We read them all!
You sure had the juice, Dr. Seuss!
Your real name?
And we’re all glad we knew you well!
