That Was Summer
By Marci Ridlon
Have you ever smelled summer?
Sure you have.
Remember that time when you were tired of running
or doing nothing much and you were hot
and you flopped right down on the ground?
Remember how the warm soil smelled and the grass?
That was summer.
Remember that time
when the storm blew up quick and you stood under a ledge
and watched the rain till it stopped and when it stopped
you walked out again to the sidewalk,
the quiet sidewalk?
Remember how the pavement smelled All steamy warm and wet?
That was summer.
Remember that time 
when you were trying to climb higher in the tree
and you didn’t know how
and your foot was hurting in the fork but you were holding tight
to the branch?
Remember how the bark smelled then 
all dusty dry, but nice?
That was summer.
If you try very hard,
Can you remember that time
When you played outside all day And you came home for dinner
And had to take a bath right away
Right away?
It took you a long time to pull
+your shirt over your head.
Do you remember smelling the sunshine?
That was summer.
Hello Room 17,
Welcome to our class blog.  We finished our first day with amazing success.  I was so impressed with the way you all worked together and helped each other out.  Your skills are all very different and we all managed to teach each other something.
I found this clip on Mr M's site.  I was really inspired by it, I hope you are too.
Mrs Roil.
