Poetry Week and Hamsters

We have been celebrating poetry week at ECA this week, which means I’ve had my students do such exciting things as write poems about their favorite computer topics (among others, HTML, CSS, PHP, and MySQL).

This week is also the week that the third graders’ pet hamster… well, I’ll let you read what happened:

There once was a hamster named Tiny
Whose prospects were looking quite shiny,
Til one day she died;
The third graders cried,
And made her a coffin that’s piney.

*Note: The last line isn’t quite true, but not many words rhyme with tiny (and I’m sure it would become true were the third graders given the idea).
