Outstanding descriptions from the mouths of babes. Love it!

I'd probably flunk this test, mj, but high marks for
all nine students. I'd probably violate the rules and
write one about the lamb lying down with the lion. -gene.

Delightful! Student five tugged at my personal sense of humor and values. Though not one of them wrote with any trace of inferiority or mediocrity. Give them all a gold star for creativity. I bid you and the first grade, joy, peace and love my dear friend. Jon Michael

Hello everyone. I'm from Japan, but was born in San Francisco, California. And grew up in Pittsburg California. Can you find that little town on the map? It's near Concord and next to the river that goes out to the Golden Gate Bridge. Pittsburg is 40 miles east of San Francisco.

I like all those poems. One line I like is 'FLUFFY FARM WILD GOBBLE'. That's very poetic. I also like 'FLUFF PUFF WILD ROAR'. My favorite is student #9 with the line 'LAMB CUTE WARM' because I raised up a baby lamb when I was a boy. I give it milk from a bottle until he became a big sheep. So the words Lamb Cute Warm made me have that memory and made me feel good. But I liked all the poems with the good suject. Keep writing and learning good english, because writing is so fun and important for comunication.
