"Fight at Bed": Fourth Grade Guest Blogger
While I work on a lengthy blog post with a book review, here is a poem from one of my young writing students. His name is Peter (Engish name), and he is a fourth grade non-native English speaker. He and his brother were born in South Korea and lived for two years in Japan before moving to the US a few years ago. They meet with me once a week for math and English tutoring. Peter has a great sense of humor, and I am honored that he let me publish his poem here.
Fight at Bed
I fight at bed.
I fight at bed with my brother.
He puts his foot on my chin.
I wake up and hit his leg.
When I wake up his foot is on my chin again.
I hit him again.
I get very mad.
I get very very mad.
