We started reading poems this week in reading class. We read some Shel Silverstein classics, including One Inch Tall, which gave us the inspiration to write our own poem about being very tall. The students wrote the poem as a class, with everyone pitching in ideas for lines and rhymes.
206 Feet Tall
by the First Grade students of St. Joseph School
If I were 206 feet tall,
I would probably fall,
Because my friends were so small!
I could bounce my ball on the top of my roof.
My steps would break a telephone booth.
I would have to crawl to fit in the hall,
So I can't go to school because I'm too tall!
I couldn’t fit inside my car,
Now I can’t go very far!
I cannot telephone my mother;
I cannot wrestle with my brother;
I cannot hold these tiny phones;
I’m so afraid I’ll break his bones.
I’m up all night; I don’t fit in bed.
I don’t fit in my seat so I can’t get fed.
I can see a hundred miles;
I can see people’s smiles,
When they see how tall I am.
They all call me Giant Sam!
