She had to use the following compound words from her spelling book: barefoot, backyard, sidewalk, afternoon.
Oh, wouldn't it be fine
If I could have a party, just mine.
I would run barefoot in the backyard,
and look at my birthday card.
I would ride scooters on the sidewalk,
and my friends and I would have a talk.
In the afternoon we could play board games.
Here, let me give you a couple names:
Parcheesi and chess,
They wouldn't make a mess.
And at the end,
The bedtime trend--
We would all get tucked in tight,
And then we would say goodnight.
