Poetry for Children ~ at home

 

We’ve been having fun revisiting our favourite poems from earlier posts and are nearly all caught up now. This week’s poems will all be about play, and then next week we will move on to new themes up until the summer break.

We hope you have fun with these playful poems!

I’m very excited to publish this fabulously fun poem by Ella:

 

Panda Poem

One little panda lies in the sun, eating bamboo and drinking some rum.

STOP STOP you’ll make yourself ill! C’mon cheeky panda you know the rules!

BUT that one cheeky panda lying in the sun, shook his head and wiggled his bum and said, you can’t MAKE ME STOP DRINKIN RUM

NO STOP cheeky panda c’mon! you know the rules! Don’t wiggle your bum!

That one cheeky panda got a huge time out, for wiggling his bum and shouting out.

SO you cheeky panda what have you learnt? To not be a bum wiggler and to not drink rum. Ok cheeky panda you’re free to go. But just remember to be nicer to your mum.
