Kiss Me Not

Kiss Me Not

Roses are red.

Violets are blue.

 Please don’t kiss me.

I’ve got the flu.

  by Bruce Lansky  




As it is a short and easy one, I decided to use it as a warmer. Before the students came to the classroom, I wrote the poem on the board but not all of it.. I elicited the words  ‘red- blue- flu’  from the students.

First we just read it together and then added some moves.. They were tired as they played in the snow🙂 So it is not the best performance but still have a look..


Roses are red, Violets are blue.. Just before the Valentine’s Day, these kind of rhymes can be nice.. what you think?

And then as a writing homework, they were asked to write down the poem. Some of the students did it during the break and showed their work to me..

And I know it says ‘mi instead of me’ She will correct it🙂
