Junior Infants in Room 1 have been learning a really funny poem called ‘Getting Dressed for School’ by Ken Nesbitt. As a special treat, our buddies from Ms Dooley’s 3rd class came to visit today and helped their junior infant buddy to draw a picture of the character from the poem. The children had a lot of fun drawing the images from the poem and they shared a lot of laughs with their buddies.
Getting Dressed for School By Ken Nesbitt
I must have been too sleepy
getting dressed for school today.
I tried to tuck my shirt in
but I couldn’t make it stay.
I also couldn’t tie my shoes.
I fumbled with the laces.
I snagged my scarf, and now some yarn
is dangling from my braces.
My socks are different colours,
and my pants are inside out.
My sweater from the hamper left me
smelling like a trout.
I thought I put a hat on
to control my crazy hair.
The hat turned out to be a pair
of purple underwear.
I spilled my breakfast on my clothes
and headed into school.
My friends, of course, were all impressed.
I’d never looked so cool.
