Mixed up Nursery Rhymes
Robin and Jeremy

Mary had a little lamb
whose fleece was white as snow
and everywhere that Mary Went
the lamb was sure to go!

Jeremy drank a chocolate shake
as fast as he was able
But it dribbled down his chin
and made a mess on the table

Steven wanted a glass of milk
so he went and found a cow
But when he tried to fill the cup
He couldn't figure out how!


By Robin

Three frogs sat on a log,
Their log was stuck in a bog.

Along came a fly,
and they all said, "Oh my!"

The fly flew away,
for the rest of the day.

Then the frogs were bored,
One of them snored.

Space Monkeys
  Robin and Jeremy Brunner

Space monkeys attacked last night,
They wanted to start a fight.

They broke down my door,
And tracked mud on my floor.

One sat on my cat,
One ate my dad's hat.

I said they couldn't stay,
So then they went away.

My mom came back,
And saw the attack.

She was so astounded,
For a month I was grounded.

She thought I had lied,
I went to my room and cried.

But the truth she learned,
When the monkeys returned.

They like to run and eat carrots.

What is Orange?

Orange is carved pumpkins, carrots, and squash, and the setting sun, and leaves in the fall

Orange is yelling, screaming and asking for candy

Orange smells like cinnamon and pumpkin cookies

Orange feels alive and full of energy.

Orange tastes like crisp, hard carrots and yummy pumpkin bread with chocolate chips.

Orange is tricker-or- treating, orange is the weather turning colder,  orange is Thanksgiving.

Orange reminds me of the going to the bridge and looking at the beautiful fall colors and being sad that Summer is finally over. 

Orange is looking forward to Thanksgiving and then to Christmas.


Orange is for October and Halloween  with the pumpkin sitting on your door.

Orange is Fall
