Grade 5B Emails to Sheree

The grade 5B class at St. Jean wanted to ask a few questions to Sheree Fitch. Mrs. Ives e-mailed Sheree to see if she would be willing to respond to some of our e-mail. She said "Go for it!" So we did.....Here are some of our messages.


Dear Sheree Fitch
You are a great author. My favorite poem is a Pocketful of Rocks. My class made our own verse and here is my version:
A pocketful of ants,
 a pocketful of ants,
 what can you do with a 
pocketful of ants,
 the ants will go to your pants that you just got from 

I like the way you got the idea for Monkeys in my Kitchen from your 
sons Jordon and Dustin playing basketball in the house and being 
noisy. I almost forgot to tell you what I look like. I had brown hair but 
I dyed it red. I have freckles and sometimes I like to write poems.

Dear Sheree Fitch,
Hi, my name Breanne Marie MacKinnon. I am in grade 5 in 
St. Jeans. I really like the book If you could wear my Sneakers 
because I like the skunk talks. I think it sounds wierd. Why did you 
study nursing if you wanted to be a poet? Thank you for all the great 
poems. You're great.

Sincerely Breanne 
Dear Sheree Fitch 
Hi, my name is Colby Wood and I'm 11 years old and I read your poems. They are very nice. I really liked Mable Murple and Pocketful of Rocks.
They are all nice. I like to make poems too. I make funny poems, sad poems and nice poems. I make a lot of mistakes. I read the book Tose in my
Nose. I think you are a good poem maker. They are all good in my books...

Yours Truly
Dear Sheree Fitch 
My name is Devon Laybolt. I think your books are really good. I have a question for you, Do you live in U.S.A.? I read a few of your books.
Where did you get the idea of  If you could wear my Sneakers? My favorite one is There are Monkeys in my Kitchen. I have one bother and two
sisters. I am a uncle. My oldest sister had a baby. His name is Alex. And I really like your poems.
From Devon 
Dear Sheree Fitch,
How did you get the idea for Pocketfull of Rocks? My favorite 
poem is Maple Murple. Where did you get the idea for Toes In 
My Nose? In Maple Murple my favorite part is when she is purple.

Hi, my name is Ryan Cheverie & here are some of my interests: 
soccer, hockey & playing outside. I have one brother, my mom, my 
dad & my cat in my family & that's some info about me.

I think that you should write a sequal to There are Monkeys in my 
Kitchen, except with a different animal or two. I liked your book and 
I think alot of other people did too. I've read that book about a million 
million times.

Dear Sheree Fitch,
What is it like to be a writer? I am a student from grade five and I 
have a big brother, a mom, a dad, a cat and a dog in my family. What 
story are you working on now? In class, my teacher read some of 
your poems like, If you could Wear my Sneakers, and Toes in my 
Nose. I hope to get a response and take care.
