Nerdy English Teacher

I am a self-proclaimed nerd. For example, my students presented on the parts of speech this past week. Each group had one part of speech, and one of the requirements was to compose an original song, poem, rap, or skit. I thought they'd really get into it. A few groups did, but not many. Anyway, to prove it could be done, I wrote my own poems/raps on each of the parts of the speech. If you're incredibly bored, give them a read.

*Disclaimer: A few I nudged a little to make them rhyme, but I doubt many people would really know that!

Well, nevermind, I can't figure out how to copy and paste them here without retyping all 8! Any suggestions?

You're not a nerd! I like to write when the kids write, too! I love it because they are all in awe of my amazing writing skills. Yeah right! But they do think I'm a good writer and so I keep doing it because it's the only time I can get them to pay me a compliment! So, keep up the good work!
