I Went to School Hungry                                   

A Poem by R. Renée Bembry

This poem about being hungry at school goes with Theme Story Two "Because I Came to School Hungry". Just like the title of the story and the poem suggest, a kid is at school on an empty stomach. Many children wind up in class without proper nourishment almost every single day. Read to see how this girl handles things when her stomach starts grumbling.


If you have not read the Theme Story that goes with this poem, you can find it HERE. :}

I went to school hungry

Was slow with my bath

I went to school hungry

Could not do my math


I went to school hungry

Stomach growled at me

I went to school hungry

For being sleepy

I smelled the flavor of

Cinnamon oatmeal

Mom placed on the table

Though late I appeared.


But when I pulled chair out

To sit down and pig out

Dad cleared his throat loudly

And said, “Excuse me.

Girl, it’s time to go.

You got dressed way too slow.

Can’t be late for school.

That’s an important rule.


No time to sit down to eat

Breakfast— don’t frown— sorry

You must follow rules

Just like mom and me.”
