Fancy a flamingo
loves fancy dress.
She likes wearing costumes.
Who she is, can you guess?

She might be a cowboy,
a doctor or a nurse,
a ballerina dancer, or the lady 
with the alligator purse.

    Did you know that a fancy dress party in Great Briton is a costume party?
This poem could go for another stanza of more costumes Fancy likes to wear, but you get the idea.  Perhaps you'd like to try writing the next stanza.  This is a list poem, listing a lot of costumes Fancy might wear.  Can you write your own poem today about going to a party?  Have fun thinking about parties.  Enjoy your writing.  Celebrate.

  1. Fancy would make good entertainment at a costume party. Maybe she could visit schools for career day, changing costumes throughout the day.
