Bruce Lansky, “The King of Giggle Poetry,” visited Roanoke Avenue Elementary School in Riverhead, NY on April 20th, 2009. Here are some of the fun poems they wrote together…


 

A poem written by Mr. Johnson’s class (4th grade):

 

The Fourth Grade Talent Show

 

Josh can burp the ABCs,

but his breath’s not the best.

We had to clear the classroom.

We missed the spelling test.

 

Joe can dunk the basketball.

He was a high-school star.

Now he teaches fourth grade,

and raids the cookie jar.

 

Lindsey sleeps though Saturday.

She sleeps though Sunday, too.

She never does her homework.

She doesn’t have a clue.

 

When Endi F. eats pizza,

he doesn’t like to chew.

He gobbles it down speedily.

He might barf on your shoe.

 

When David starts to giggle,

he knows he shouldn’t drink.

The liquid shoots out of his nose.

It makes his clothing stink.

 

Keri wiggles both her ears.

Stand close so you can see.

If there’s a critter in her hair,

it just might be a flea.

  

Heather jumps rope with her feet

and hoops around her arms.

That’s why the guys think Heather’s cool.

She has so many charms.

 

“SBD” is David’s thing.

When he performs, watch out!

Don’t stand very close to him—

He smells like a dead trout!
