The N0-Snow-Day Day

The no-snow day day

The No-Snow-Day Day

The snowflakes swirl and laugh and play.

While inside, here I sit.

The snowflakes run along the wind

And wave up to the sky.

And all the while, I’m stuck  inside,

inside hard at work.

Reading, ‘Riting, ‘Rithmetic

Have no appeal to me.

It is outside I want to be

To run and laugh and play.

 

The snowflakes tire and sit to rest

Upon the cold, white ground.

The snowflakes seem to wait for me

To don my woolen mitts.

Here inside I have to stay,

The teacher reads a book.

“What do you think about this book?”

She asks me after while.

 

How can I tell her what I think?

How can I let her know?

I’d rather be outside right now

And playing in the snow!

About bjdonaldson

I think of myself as a Renaissance woman with a variety of passions. If you visited me, you might find me hanging out with my husband and children. Our Golden Retriever would be lovingly near. I am a Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at an elementary school where I provide professional development and coaching to teachers. Formerly, I was a Reading Recovery teacher, an interventionist, and a middle and elementary classroom teacher. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.

  1. That’s an incredible amount of snow on that table and it was a no-snow-day day! What about tomorrow? I can’t imagine keeping the attention of students with that amount of snow outside!
    Hopefully everyone will get to play tomorrow.

  2. That sure is a lot of snow. I can’t even imagine as I am from the desert in Southern California. That kind of snow and I wouldn’t be going anywhere! I’m sorry there was not a snow day for you guys but this sure was a cute poem. I really enjoyed it.
