Highlights and homework – Day 3 – Sept 29th

Homework:

Language:

  1. Mix bag:

Students will read the following poem and answer the following questions:-Homework! Oh, Homework! – by Jack Prelutsky

Homework! Oh, Homework!

I hate you! You stink!

I wish I could wash you away in the sink,

if only a bomb

would explode you to bits.

Homework! Oh, homework!

You’re giving me fits.

 

I’d rather take baths

with a man-eating shark,

or wrestle a lion

alone in the dark,

eat spinach and liver,

pet ten porcupines,

than tackle the homework,

my teacher assigns.

 

Homework! Oh, homework!

you’re last on my list,

I simple can’t see

why you even exist,

if you just disappeared

it would tickle me pink.

Homework! Oh, homework!

I hate you! You stink!
