assorted-colored Crayola crayons
I remember the paper cuts that I received from composition notebooks
I remember the big 64 pack of Crayola crayons 
I remember getting stains from Crayola markers on my fingers
I remember listening to the Beatles ‘Abbey road’ for the first time
I remember playing on the tire wheel swing at the park
I remember playing with the rhino skin dodgeballs
I remember using Dixon Ticonderoga #2 yellow pencil
I remember watching the magic school bus on a tv during gym class 
I remember seeing the Mister Softee Ice cream truck outside after school
I remember the Titan Phone Booths

Dear Heather:
I am loving your poem, “my childhood,” because of how much a can relate to it on a personal level. it makes me reminisce on the past and makes me kinda miss early middle school.
One line that stands out for me is, “I remember getting stains from Crayola markers on my fingers”. I think this line is amusing because this used to happen to me all the time. so much so that I don’t think there was I time that my hands were clear.
Another line that stands out for me is,  “I remember playing on the tire weel swing at the park”. I like this line because of how much I can relate to it. a park right near my house has these 2 big trie swings that my 4 friends and I could fit on.
Your poem reminds me of my childhood and it so nice to read.
Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next.
