This years Kidlitsosphere Progressive Poem is based off song lyrics.
I chose Pointer Sister's song, "We Are Family" because I just returned from my sisters trip. Think of it: Five sisters and this year we invited our two aunts. Needless to say it was a blast. We went to Edisto Beach, SC.
Endless summer; I can see for miles…
Fun, fun, fun – and the whole world smiles.
No time for school- just time to play,
we swim the laughin’ sea each and every day.
You’re simply the best
Hold my hand and we’ll be free
Have faith in you and the things you do
Up next, our poem moves on to Liz @ Elizabeth Steinglass
