Animals (an A, B, C poem)
By Vi T.

Animals are awesome
Birds can fly in the sky
Cats can be big or small
Deer are cute and quiet
Every animal is cool walking in the grass
Falcons can be scary making sounds in the sky
Get everyone happy because animals are cute

Fruits (an A, B, C Poem)
By Valeria G.

Apples are sweet
Berries are delicious
Cumquats are juicy
Delicious strawberries are sweet and juicy
Excellent star fruit shaped like a star
Famous fruits are everywhere!!!

A, B, C Poem
By Jenny W.

Air is everywhere, makes the sound “whoosh”.
Banana trees sway from side to side.
Cars in the freeway go fast! Vroom!
Different people fly kits in the sky.
It is a beautiful windy day today!  Wooo!

Did you know there’s an app for Poetry?  POETRY from the Poetry Foundation App Nominated for WebbyAward.

Today's video is from SCORES Board Member and longtime Coach, Mr. Stevenson.  He recites from memory the Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson poem, "Clancy of the Overflow" and invites you to join him in celebrating National Poetry Month by giving your Full 180 to America SCORES Seattle!
