My animal poem!

My Animal Poem!


By: Lupe Hafoka

My animal is a tiger.


It’s soft fur is orange and black.


It runs with its muscular body


It’s eyes are red like a fiery ball inside.

It’s body is strong and muscly.


It’s ears are small like my ears.


It’s legs move powerfully.

It sound like a ROARRRRRRRR!!!!

This week we did endangered animal poem. My animal is a tiger. I had to describe a tiger.

Beach Description


As still calm sea smoothly glides around the sand while the green big trees make shade over the cave. Through the horizon you are able to see tiny islands. As the bubbles on the waves crash and smash on the cove, it makes the trees sway side to side. A patch of sand goes from dark brown and blends into light brown  to dark brown. The blue sky has got puffy fluffy white clouds. The cove is very dark and pitch black. Most of the waves roll in and out of the cave.

The salty aroma floats in the air. Dead rotting shellfish makes a stinky stench which spreads across the beach then creates a smelly smell. Delicious smells of pizza and fish and chips mesmerizes all the hungry seagulls. The sunscreen on my boiling burning body slithers around the sand like a snake. Fresh beautiful scent of flowers fires out and around like mad fireworks.

A caustic gust of wind slightly touches my face. Never Ending waves swish through toes,  running past feet,  reaching the dry sand. Heat from the sun crash onto the sand and radiates the air. Green bushy trees swish from side to side while green gentle leaves float down to toes.An abrasive cove lies proudly on the sand.

There is nothing better than spending a day at the beach. As soon as you arrive you can feel yourself getting so excited to jump into the water. I love the beach because you don’t have to worry about anything. Would you rather go to the beach and play or would you rather go to the beach and relax???


This week we had to write about the beach. I am proud of how I used lots of adjectives.
