If the World Was Crazy by Shel Silverstein

This is the poem you've been working on with Maria -our language assistant- during this week. It's a funny poem, isn't it? I post it here so that you can go over it again and check how much of it you got at first.

If the World Was Crazy

If the world was crazy, you know what I'd eat?
A big slice of soup and a whole quart of meat,
A lemonade sandwich, and then I might try
Some roasted ice cream or a bicycle pie,
A nice notebook salad, an underwear roast,
An omelet of hats and some crisp cardboard toast,
A thick malted milk made from pencils and daisies,
And that's what I'd eat if the world was crazy.

If the world was crazy, you know what I'd wear?
A chocolate suit and a tie of eclair,
Some marshmallow earmuffs, some licorice shoes,
And I'd read a paper of peppermint news.
I'd call the boys "Suzy" and I'd call the girls "Harry,"
I'd talk through my ears, and I always would carry
A paper umbrella for when it grew hazy
To keep in the rain, if the world was crazy.

If the world was crazy, you know what I'd do?
I'd walk on the ocean and swim in my shoe,
I'd fly through the ground and I'd skip through the air,
I'd run down the bathtub and bathe on the stair.
When I met somebody I'd say, "G'bye, Joe,"
And when I was leaving--then I'd say "Hello."
And the greatest of men would be silly and lazy
So I would be king...if the world was crazy.

Glogster tutorial (2º ESO)

I found this very easy Glogster tutorial on YouTube. Here you have this little help in case you missed something yesterday when we talked about how to use it and how to create our music glog.

Remember that you can't use only pictures and videos and that you have to write some text about the group, band, singer or type of music you choose. Be original! We will vote and post here the best ones.
