I am responsible for all that I do,
from turning in work to making friends too.
I choose if my room will be messy or clean,
I make the choice to be kind or mean.
It is up to me just how much I will learn,
the grades that I get will be grades that I earn.
I make the choice to be happy or sad,
to have a good day or have one that is bad.
So now I will choose what is best for me.
I am responsible.
I hold the key.
I am Responsible (Word.doc)
I’m Late For School
I quickly threw books in my bag,
My pens, my lunch and shorts.
Grabbed my coat from out the cupboard,
Took my bat and ball for sports.
I slid across the kitchen floor,
And hopped around the cat!
Then expertly rolled over,
Jumped back up and grabbed my hat!
I belted out of our front door,
Spun round and swung it shut.
Saw the bus was waiting for me,
I felt I had time to strut!
I climbed aboard and then froze still,
And knew that things weren’t right!
My friends fell down in fits of fun,
And pointed with delight!
My face went red, I couldn’t breathe,
For in my haste I knew!
I’d forgotten to wear trousers,
Jumper, shirt, my socks and shoes!
