3rd grade Christmas haiku

In the spirit of the season, the Christmas decorations came out– which, of course, included tidbits of my childhood: crafty assignments based ’round pastes, construction paper and cleverly-written haiku.


For those of you who find 3rd-grade handwriting illegible, I’ll transcribe:

“Roots are not on tree.

Presents are under our nice tree.

Carots are very nice.”

10 points for getting five solid  syllables in the first line. 200 points for running out of subject matter and delving into the contents of lunch– complete with a misspelling!
