Nice Work

Never use the word PRETTY, our teacher said.
It doesn't mean a thing!
Try…attractive, pleasant, charming,
beautiful, appealing, engaging,
gorgeous, lovable, dazzling,
stunning, irresistible, delightful-
The choice is as long as a string!
But please, never use the word PRETTY,
It just doesn't mean a thing!

(She’s pretty our teacher. )

For writing my group were focusing on reading a poem called Nice Work. After reading the poem we learnt about the phrase (as long as a string). Then we picked a word to create the same but changed poem. We added the synonyms to the word that we have picked. I have done the meaning of (as long as a string) and a example of the phrase as well.


  1. Kia Ora Savelina,
    I really like your poem, it is stunning and delightful. At our school on tuesdays, we have a word that the teacher picks and on paper or in our book we have to do words that our better than the word but it has to still mean the same. It is called 'Word Staircase', today it was wet. Lots of peoples lists are as long as string!
