A Ghost who lost his Boo {a poem}

At the end of the year, Colton’s second grade class had a “Poetry Café” for the other younger grades to come visit. The children stood at their desks like statues with their heads down and hand out with a sticker on it like a button.  You could go around and push the sticker button and the “statue” would come to life and recite you a poem. Dressing up for the part was optional. He of course chose to dress up. Colton’s poem was about a ghost who is forlorn because he lost his boo. (Hence the white sheet).  His poem (not written by him)  was three stanzas long and he memorized the whole thing.  He said that he was the most popular “statue” in class and kids were lined up to push his button and hear the poem.

"100 spooks reward". How cleaver. He did a great job memorizing his poem.

Colton is so imaginative. I'll have to ask him to recite the poem. You will always have a fun life with him around.

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
