Reading Harry Potter on the Beach By Todd Burge & Mr. Tobar’s 5th Graders at Harmer Elementary


Reading Harry Potter on the Beach
By Todd Burge & Mr. Tobar’s 5th Graders at Harmer Elementary
5/26/2015
It’s the last day of school
And I feel lost in the woods
From some series of unfortunate events

I could talk to my parents
But I’m not sure they’d listen
So, I’ll just close my eyes and let my mind drift
I’ll close my mind and let my mind drift

I’m reading Harry Potter on the Beach
Worry free
Worry free

I’m reading Harry Potter on the Beach
Worry free
Worry free

Summer’s coming on
And I see some bummers long long gone
So I won’t plan ahead if I don’t have to

I have half of a mind to
Join up with you
As our two heads might make
A like mind before we’re through
A  like mind before we’re through

I’m reading Harry Potter on the Beach
Worry free
Worry free

Eating anything with bacon
That’s for me
Worry free
Worry free
Worry free

TRUE FRIENDS - Written with the 5th Grade class at Belpre Elementary 5/6/2015



True Friends
Written with the 5th Grade class at Belpre Elementary 5/6/2015

Everybody has a thought
Everybody has a want
We all want to have friends
True friends

Maybe share a Mountain Dew
Or an inside joke or two
We all want to have friends
True friends

Lonely, lonely
You’re not lonely anymore
Sadness has an end
When you have true friends

How does one make friends?
Well, by makin’ friends my friend
As you want it to be done to you
Well, do it unto them

Maybe joke about crazy snakes & beans
Or Mombo the toilet thief…………………??
We all want to have friends
True friends

There’s A Head in My Brother’s Closet
Written with the 3rd Grade class at Belpre Elementary 5/6/2015

There’s a head in my brother’s closet
A head a head
If you get caught in there’ll
Be trouble, you might be better off dead
I had to run away to get away
From this very tricky day
There's a head in my brothers closet
A head  a head

As you look in there
You'll see a scene
Worse than the worst of your dreams
If you open up his door
You’re gonna lose it for sure
So walk away on second thought
You ought to run instead
As there's a head and my brothers closet
A head a head

If you see mom tell her I'm sorry
And I'll never do it again
Until I do it again I mean, you know me
I tend to make mistakes
I'll try hard to be the best I can be but until then
There's a head in my brothers closet
And that head belongs to me
There's a head in my brothers closet
And it’s attached to the rest of me
And that head belongs to me.
