  16.          Aliteracy Poem Mrs. Thompson's second graders are amazing!  The principal says they can comprehend anything-- Even a medical textbook. Mrs. Thompson's second graders are incredible!  The superintendent says their oral reading is completely seamless-- Like the gentle flow of an eternal spring. Mrs. Thompson's second graders are fantastic! The PTA president says they finished the reading workbook and the phonics workbook before the end of the Third Quarter.  Mrs. Thompson's second graders worry me. You see, I'm the aide who works in Mrs. Thompson's classroom, And I know something that others don't. Mrs. Thompson's second graders don't like to read.
