Fables Block - Grade 2

a poem written together as a class on March 7, 2011


The Fox and the Grapes

The fox saw some grapes

On a big vine:

"Those grapes look delicious,

They'll soon be mine!"

He jumped and he jumped

With all his power,

But the grapes were too high:

"They're probably sour."
