Poof! I’m a giant—huge in size.       

Poof! I’m an owl with big yellow eyes.                           

Poof! I’m a mouse with an ee-ee-ee,               

Poof! This is best, now I’m back to me. 

 

I look like this when I'm happy.

I look like this when I sigh.

I look like this when I'm sleepy, 

I look like this when I cry.

I look like this when I'm angry,

I look like this when I'm sad.

 I look like this when I'm curious,

And I look like this when I'm glad.               

 

Of all you learn here,                                                         

Remember this the best.                                                    

Don’t hurt each other,                                               

And clean up your mess.                                                    

Take a nap every day,

And wash before you eat.

Hold hands, stick together,

Look! Before you cross the street.

Remember the seed

In the little paper cup,

First, the root goes down,

And then the plant grows up.

                --John McCutcheon

"The Kindergarten Wall"

 

I want to learn to whistle,

I've always wanted to;

I fix my mouth to do it but,

The whistle won't come through

I think perhaps it's stuck, and so

I try it once again; 

Can people swallow whistles, 

Where is my whistle then?

 

You're a very special person,

And I wanted you to know,

How much I have enjoyed

Just watching you grow.

Try hard to learn, all that you can,

There is so much to know!

For you're unique---as you are you,

And all will cheer: "Bravo!"

 

Be yourself,

No matter where the wind blows.

Be yourself,

Whatever you do.

Someone else can

Never be you.

Before you look at me

Look inside and be...

Yourself.

Be yourself,

No matter what the fashion.

Be yourself,

And you'll be a star.

No one else can

Be the one you are.

Before you look at me,

Look inside and be...

Yourself.
