Day 25 – “I Use My Words”

Standard

“I Use My Words” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Goodness, I am ANGRY

It makes me want to SHOUT

And STOMP and WEAR A MEAN FACE

To let the ANGER out

Instead I USE MY WORDS to say

WHAT I AM MAD ABOUT

 

Goodness, I am sad today

It makes me want to cry

And pout and whine and whimper

And sniffle, sob and sigh

Instead I use my words

To tell everybody why

 

Goodness, I am happy!

It makes me want to run

And go wild and act all crazy

Until the day is done

Instead I use my words ‘cause that way

We can ALL have fun!

 

When my FEELINGS get too STRONG

I know it’s time to say,

“I’ll USE MY WORDS to show how I feel

In a SAFE and HEALTHY way”

Day 17 – “Tell Me Who”

Standard

“Tell Me Who” By Jaymie Gerard

 

Who put the holes in my Swiss cheese?

Who put the hair on Daddy’s knees?

Who put the “thank you” after “please”?

Someone, tell me who!

Who put the button in my belly?

Who took fruit and made it jelly?

Who made feet so awfully smelly?

Tell me, was it you?

Day 10 – “Paint Me a Picture”

Standard

“Paint Me a Picture” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Paint me a picture

Sing me a song

Give me a giggle

Bring me along

 

Write me a riddle

Tell me a clue

Shine me a smile

I love you

 

 

Day 9 – “If We All Were Robots”

Standard

“If We All Were Robots” by Jaymie Gerard

 

If we all were robots

Instead of girls and boys

Maybe we’d have humans

To play with as our toys

 

We’d keep them in our closets

And take them out for games

We’d dress them up in little clothes

And give them funny names

 

We’d take them to the marketplace

We’d take them to the pool

We’d listen to them singing songs

And send them off to school

 

We’d see them getting taller

We’d help them as they grow

We’d wish that they’d get smaller

But they don’t do that, you know

 

They’d grow up to be astronauts

And presidents and kings

We’d pretend that we were humans

So we could do human-like things

 

So we might as well be humans

If we ever get the choice

‘Cause who’d want to be robots

When we could be girls or boys?

 

Day 5 – “Grapefruit”

Standard

Grapefruit by Jaymie Gerard

There’s one fruit I can say I hate

(Though others seem to think it’s great)

It looks kind of like an orange but

You’ll smell the difference when it’s cut

It’s usually a softball’s size

And yellowish or pink inside

It’s bitter, even with some sugar

The pulp, to me, feels like a booger

It’s just the worst, you can’t debate –

So Mom, WHY IS IT ON MY PLATE?!
