Cars.

Cars
by Gabriel Malvaiz

Cars are
Low to go,
Slow in snow,
And know when to go.
Stop!
You know
When to go.
Now go
Slow and low.
I know.

Vocabulary Poems on Human Impact

Concerned
By GL
Fourth Grade

My brother worries
A lot. My mom
Worries a lot too. My dad
Worries about his car,
But they are my
Family.

04.23.15

Local
By JR
Fourth Grade

Something local
Is when it’s small.
It’s not far away. It’s
Nearby. If you are sick,
It doesn’t affect a lot of people
With the same thing.
It’s when you are just dealing
With a city. It’s
Not around the
World.

04.23.15

Organization
By AM
Fourth Grade

An organization is
A group of people.
A group that
Is working together,
Helping each other
Like a construction crew or
Like a soccer team.
