Today’s poems are a series of Today My Name is poems written during our Fall 2011 season by teammates at Maple Elementary School:

Today My Name Is
By Bailey A.

Today my name is Chocolate Chip
I feel sweet and playful

Yesterday my name was Kentucky Fried Chicken
I heard people liked me
I found I was warm and crummy

Tomorrow my name will be Ticklish.
I will forget what I was yesterday.
I will remember that I did not like my name yesterday.

Today My Name Is
By Tya N.

Today my name is Soccer.
I feel fast.
I pretend to be a ball.

Yesterday my name was Basketball.
I heard a ball go “whoosh”.
I found everyone wanted to bounce me.

Tomorrow my name will be Volleyball.
I will forget that I was a ball.
I will remember that everyone likes to bounce me!

Today My Name Is
By Jason W.

Today my name is Airplane
I feel good when I soar through the sky
I pretend I am a bird

Yesterday my name was duck
I heard people chatting
I found a piece of break in the water

Tomorrow my name will be snail
I will forget how to talk snail language
I will remember to breath

Today My Name Is
By Valeria G.

Today my name is Volleyball
Because I feel fast and happy
I pretend I’m going in slow motion and singing

Yesterday my name was Soccer Ball
I heard a swish when I was rolling down the grass
I found that I was popular and cool.

Tomorrow my name will be Football
And they will pass me back and forth
I will forget I was a ball
I will remember I’m awesome and cool.

Today's video is from America SCORES Seattle's 2012 National Poetry Slam representative Tya N. who reads Smart by Shel Silverstein, and encourages you to take the 60 - 60 - 60 Challenge this April!
