This week, we are launching a poem from Orillia, Ontario. You can read Michelle Sheppard's poem as well as hear it with the audio feature.
Michelle Sheppard is enrolled in literacy classes at the Orillia Literacy Council. Orillia is in Ontario's Lake Country, close to Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching.

Winter is cold, cold, cold and it can be snowy, stormy or windy. It can also be white icy and can be slippery.
We can snowmobile ski and snowboard.
Up the hills and down the hills on a toboggan, GT and crazy carpet.
We can go cross-country skiing and snow shoeing.
We can make igloos, snow forts and snowmen.
We can have snow ball fights, sleigh rides and go fishing.
We can have some hot chocolate and have a lot of fun, fun, and more fun.
