Maybe the wheelbarrow poet Was just Making a picture with words And someone else Like maybe his teacher Typed it up And then people thought It was a poem Because It looked like one Typed up like that.Typed upThey look likePoemsAnd the other kidsAre looking at themAnd they thinkThey really areAnd theyAre all sayingWho wrote that?What does “making pictures with words” mean?

Choose me!and we did.We chose him!We were going for a driveAnd my father saidWe won’t be gone long –You come tooAnd so I wentAnd we drove and droveUntil we stopped at aRed brick buildingWith a signIn blue lettersANIMAL PROTECTION SHELTERAnd inside we walkedDown a long cement pathPast cagesWith all kinds ofDogsBig and smallFat and skinnySome of them hiding in the cornerBut most of themBark-bark-barking andJumping upAgainst the wire cageAs we walked past, as if they were saying “Me! Me! Choose me!I’m the one!

And the other dogs In the cages Get killed dead If nobody chooses them.1. What techniques did Jack borrow from Robert Frost, Carlos Williams and William Blake?2. What new information did we learn about Jack’s yellow dog?3. How did you feel when we read “other dogs get killed dead if nobody chooses them?”

6 Love That Dog: Pages 31-34 February 15th In the street But only if a grown upOr the big kidsAre out there, too,And they will shoutCAR!If they see a carComing down our street.At both ends of our streetAre yellow signs that sayCaution! Children at Play!But sometimes the cars payNo attentionAnd speed downThe roadAs if they are in a big hurryWith many miles to goBefore they sleep.I like that poem we read today About street music In the city.

12 Love That Dog: Pages 42-45 March 14th where I can See it when I’m Lying downMaybe you could copy it too and hang it on the wallIn our classWhere we can see it when we are sitting at our desks doing stuff I sure loved that poem by Mr. Walter Dean Myers Called “Love That Boy”.Because of two reasons I liked it: One because my dad callsMe in the morning Just like thatHe calls “Hey There Son!” And also because when I had my yellow dogI loved that dog and would call him. Like this- I’d Say Hey There, Sky! (His name why Sky)That was the best best BEST poem You read yesterday By Mr. Walter Dean Myers the best best BEST poem ever. I am sorry I took the book home without asking. I only got one spot on it. That’s why the page is torn. I tried to get the spot out. I copied that BEST poem and hung it in my bedroom right over my bed

14 Love That Dog: By Jack Love that dog, like a bird loves to fly I said love that dogLove to call him in the morninglove to call him“Hey there, Sky!”
15 Love That Dog: Pages 46-48 March 22 And I’d call him Every morning every eveningHey there, Sky!My Yellow dog followed me everywhere every which way I turned he was there wagging his tail and slobber coming out of his mouth when he was smiling at me all the time as if he was saying “thank you thank you thank you for choosing me” And jumping up on me his shaggy straggly paws on my chest like he was trying to hug the insides right out of me.And when us kids were playing outside kicking the ball he’d chase after it and push it with his nose push push push and getting slobber all over the ball but no one cared because he was such a funny dog that dog SkyThat straggly furrySmilingDogSky.What poem is Jack imitating?What mood is this poem?Why do you think Jack is starting to write about his old pet?
16 Love That Dog: Pages 49-54 March 27 April 4 That sounds good to my ears. Now no one will think I just copied because I couldn’t think of my own words. They will know I was inspired by Mr. Walter Dean Myers. But don’t put it on the board yet, okay?Is Mr. Walter Dean Myers a live person?And if he is do you think he could ever comeTo our city to our school to our class?Yes, you can type up What I wrote about My dog Sky but don’t type up that other secret one I wrote- the one all folded up in the envelope with tape on it. That one uses too many of Mr. Walter Dean Myers’s words and maybe Mr. Dean Myer’s would get mad about that.I was very glad toHear that Mr. Walter Dean Myers is not the sort of person who would get madAt a boyFor using some of his words. And thank you for typing up my secret poem the one that uses so many of Mr. Walter Dean Myer’s words and I like what you put at the top: Inspired by Walter Dean Myers
17 Love That Dog: Pages 49-54 April 12th April 4 (continued) April 9th I don’t agree that Mr. Walter Dean Myers might like to hearfrom a boy who likes his poems.I think Mr. Walter Dean Myers would like to hear from a teacher who uses big words and knows howTo spellAnd toType.And if he did we should hide my poem with his words- his it real good- just in case he would get mad about that.No.No. No. No. No. NO !I can’t do it.You should do it. You’re a teacher.
18 Love That Dog: Pages 55-59 April 12th Dear Mr. Walter Dean Myers, You probably don’t want to hear from me because I am only a boy and not a teacher and I don’t use big words and you probably won’t even read this or even if you do read it you probably are way too busy to answer it Let alone to the thing I am going to ask you and I want you to know that’s okay
19 Love That Dog: Pages 55-59 April 12th that’s okay because our teacher says writers are very very very very busy trying to write their words and the phone is ringing and the fax is going and the bills need paying and sometimes they get sick (I hope you are not sick, Mr. Walter Dean Myers) or their family gets sick or their electricity goes off or the car needs fixing or they have to go to the grocery store or do the laundry
20 Love That Dog: Pages 55-59 April 12th Or clean messes. I don’t know how you find the time to write your words if you have to do all that stuff and maybe you should get a helper So, what I am asking you is this: if you ever get the time to leave your house and if you feel like visiting a school where there might be some kids who like your poems would you ever maybe think about maybe coming
21 Love That Dog: Pages 55-59 April 12th Maybe to our school which is a clean place with mostly nice people in it and I think our teacher Miss. Stretchberry would maybe even make brownies for you because she sometimes makes them for us I hope I haven’t too much stopped you from doing your Writing of words and fixing your car and getting groceries
22 Love That Dog: Pages 55-59 April 12th And all that stuff- just to read this letter – which probably is taking you maybe fifteen minutes and in time you could’ve maybe written a whole new poem or at least the start of one and so I am sorry For taking up your time and I understand if you can’t come to our clean school and read some of your poems to us and let us see your face which I bet is a friendly face. My Name is Jack. Bye, Mr. Walter Dean Myers.
