Unit 8: Lesson 6 IMA

Leave a comment

When I became the star of my grade 3 class,

I was glimmering as a star in a pitch black galaxy,

as the centre of attention,



I shared my life with my admirers and the world revolved around me,

Was I the sun? I wondered.

I shared pictures, stories, favourite objects.

As I looked at the shining, excited eyes of my friends,

I wanted to give them more, food for the body as much as for the soul,

My specialty vietnamese salad made with love rays.

At the end of the week, my light began to dim,


and I worried that I’d be a black a hole.

However, the next week started with a new star, and I became the moon, reflecting the light of my friend.

I have noticed that there has been a great improvement in the usage of figurative language. I will need to work on building my vocabulary.

The IT poem:


It stares at me I stare at it,

I want a ride but I’m scared of it

I shut my terror-filled eyes and hop on it

I jump with joy and fall off it

what is it?

  1. To describe different forms of live and/or to appreciate birth and life.
  2. I do agree because it applies to humans as well. When one is about to experience something new, there is often a mixture of joy, excitement, and fear at the same time.
  3. It seems as the speaker is an adult or an older person who wants to go back to childhood.
  4. It does not influence my interpretation.

  1. The aspect of feeling unsatisfied. The plowman’s concern is so extreme that he can never prevent himself from looking back at his work every time he is close to the end of the plow line. “Look Backward, ever with discontent,” “Unappeased i leave the field, Expectant return.”
  2. I think the main mood of this poem is that it is disappointing because of all the hard work done, and i the end, the plowman is not appeased from his work (It is especially disappointing because this happens over and over again).
  3. “A stone, a root, a strayed thought, has wraped the line of that furrow.
  4. The plowman is just trying to say that he does have hope that on day he will be content and will appreciate the work that he has done. And that if his work would be bad, he would not look back.

I came home again, put the groceries away
Proud of the willpower I had summoned today.
I made a light lunch, nothing fattening of course.
I was bound and determined I’d have no need for remorse.

I thought I’d see what my next blog post would entail
But first I remembered to go check my mail.
A plain package was waiting, a simple disguise,
I had no way of knowing it would do harm to my thighs.

I opened the wrapping and dug deep down inside
Where lots of my favourites were trying to hide.
I saw fudge chunks and cocoa and dark chocolate chips
I knew they meant trouble but took a few nips.
