WHAT IS WHITE?? by Mrs. Grant's 2013-2014 Reading & Language GroupEnjoy this wonderful collaberation by the third graders in Mrs. Grant's Reading & Lanuage group during a study of the genre poetry and descriptive sensory writing:
WHAT IS WHITE?
White is a warm towel fresh from the dryer.Cotton from a Cottonwood flying higher and higher.
White is soap that comes in a bar.Slick as snow on a white car.
Sugar, mashed potatoes, and ice creamA ghost in a dream beginning to scream!
White is the color of a flashlight beamThe color of the jersey on my sport’s team.
Albino mice and shiny white diceSlurping a vanilla milk shake is nice!
White is the sound of scratching frost on a windowAnd as soft as down in a fluffy pillow!
White is the liberty stripe in the flag.White is the color of most trash bags.
The white of a daisy and feeling lazy,The lonely feel of white makes me crazy.
The soft feel of a Kleenex on your nose,White is the color everyone knowsFrom the tip of their nose to their white-socked toes!
The head of an eagle and also a seagullA blob of cream cheese of a bagel.
Heavenly white is extremely mightyAnd also the color of tighty whities!!
