Writer's Workshop: Espanol = Amor

(But before I begin...my baby is 8 months old today - wow!)

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Espanol was never my favorite subject
I took it because of you.

Sugar is sweet
Lemons are sour
I have to admit
Your class was my favorite hour.

Winter is cold
summer is hot
Teacher you should know
you probably shouldn't have smoked that pot.

Hearts, they beat
Fingers, they type
I loved going to Mexico
it was so worth the hype.

Thank you for teaching me
thank you for listening
thank you for being
my favorite teacher.

Ok, how lame was that poem? I should note that I chose not to actually say the teacher's name. This teacher got in some serious trouble after I graduated high school and no longer teaches. There were accusations of the teacher using drugs, drinking, and other things. But I enjoyed taking espanol because of how this teacher taught it to me. Though I don't remember much. No me gusta el gato is about the only spanish I know...and if you know what that means, you get 500 bonus points! Oh and also, I was able to go with a big group from my school to Mexico. We went in saw all kinds of ruins and such and ended out our time in Cancun, this teacher was a chaperone there.



Your turn: Check out the prompts below and decide what you want to write about, then head over to MamaKat's site and leave your information in Mr. Linky! :)

The Prompts:

by the way, thank you for replying about the baby food. i thought that might be how you do it, but i wasn't sure. i know danny LOVES bananas and carrots, and i would rather do it myself. i'll have to look into getting that book. and hey, when you learn how to do stage 2, let me know!

thank you again!

I'm pretty sure that your Spanish comment translates as "I don't like the cat", although I don't remember much of my Spanish either :-). I don't think I ever had that particular teacher, however.

And a happy 8 months to Parker!
