Let it Rain
(Tune: “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow”)
By Giuliana, Grade 6

I woke up one morning.
I found out that it was pouring.
My sister was being a pain.
Let it Rain, Let it rain, Let it Rain!

I really don’t feel like mopping,
but this rain is just not stopping.
My mother is going insane!
Let it Rain, Let it Rain, Let it Rain!

When it finally starts to stop,
how ill hate going out in the slop.
And if I put my boots on tight,
my mother won’t be such a pain.
Let it Rain, Let it Rain, Let it Rain!

I really don’t feel like mopping,
but this rain is just not stopping!
My mother is going insane!
Let it Rain, Let it Rain, Let it Rain!



This Room is Made for Me
(Tune: “This Land is your Land”)
By Richie, Grade 4

When I got home, I went upstairs.
And I went to my room and found it a mess.
When I got home, I found a mess.
This room was made for me, NOT you!
Chorus:
That room is your room. This room is my room.
From door to window, from wall to closet.
That room is your room, this room is my room.
This room was made for me, NOT you!

When I went to play,
my brother came in, and messed my room up
I told him GET OUT,
I told him to stay out, I put a sign up.
This room was made for me, NOT YOU!

Chorus:
That room is your room. This room is my room.
From door to window, from wall to closet.
That room is your room, this room is my room.
This room was made for me, NOT you!

Billy, The Red Gummi-Bear

(Tune: Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer)

 By, Alexa, Grade 5

 

Billy, the Red Gummi-Bear

Yes, he was in my nightmare.

I was about to eat him

Now I'm stuck in Candyland.

 

I got locked up in a cage

which was made of candy canes.

And  then the worst thing happened

I ate all the candy canes.

 

Then when I was about to le-eave

Billy came to say,

"You are such a naughty girl

because you ate all my friends!"

 

I rode a gummi sha-ark

Because I was then leaving.

Then when I wok up I said,

"Oh, it was just a nightmare!"
