The Pines

Around our school there is a big line of pine trees. We hope they don't get cut down like the ones in this poem.

We did like all the sounds and images Margaret Mahy uses in her poem though. Hainite, Joe and Stevie have tried to recreate the pictures they had in their minds in this movie.

You read so clearly, I can hear all those sound words that Margaret Mahy used to describe the pine trees falling. Well done on your clear and expressive speaking Penguins Group.

Your sound effects were great, Penguins and I really liked your expressive reading. I am sure Margaret Mahy would be very pleased with this presentation.
