I Go to Dance Class

I am going to a dance class.
I get to twist and spin.
I twirl and whirl and swirl around.
Sometimes I fall and my teacher says,
“Hop up and try again!”
It is fun when you can spin.
It is fun when you can stop on just the right spot.
Next, I think I’ll take tap dance class.

Ice Skate Today? No Way!

Today is a gray, cold day!  
And the sun is tucked away.
So we can skate today. Hooray! Yay!   
I want to skate on ice today!   
I want to slide and glide on ice in my skates on this day.
Oh no! The sun is out.
The ice will melt away, and this day to skate will slip away.
I cannot stay on the ice this way.    
I cannot play on the ice this day.
It is not a day to skate when the ice melts away.
I will have to walk away.
There is NO WAY to skate today!
