Lesson 84 – Jump or Jiggle 

Frogs jump
Caterpillars hump

Worms wiggle
Bugs jiggle

Rabbits hop
Horses clop

Snakes slide
Seagulls glide

Mice creep
Deer leap

Puppies bounce
Kittens pounce

Lions stalk-
But-
I walk!

–  Evelyn Beyer

Write a short, imaginative poem about a tree.

Before you start, find two or three words that rhyme with ‘tree,’ three words that rhyme with ‘trunk,’ and two or three words that rhyme with ‘leaf, or ‘leaves.’ You don’t have to use them all. You may use any words you like. They do not have to be from your list.

Have fun!
