Jumping to the Stars


AJ wrote a fabulous poem based on his picture book exploration. The students read picture books looking for words that “strike the soul.” Notice AJ’s use of similes.

“Jumping to the Stars”

by AJ

Up I go, ready to do tricks

to jump and flip

So many tricks

Which one is next?

It feels like I am flying 

in the sky

 like an eagle soaring

through the clouds

up high

I tuck hard

and spin through the air

like a tornado in the sky

on my stomach

and POP!

In the air again

I twirl like a spinning blade

Land on my feet

Strong and firm

Happy as ever

Victorious, excited

Up I go, ready for more tricks

This tremendous feeling will never end
