    The Supply Teacher is my favourite Allan Ahlberg poem. We are reading some of his poems at school, and I like his poems very much. The poem I didn't like so much is The Puzzle.

The Supply Teacher

Here's the rule for what to do
If ever your teacher has the flu
Or for some other reason takes to her bed
And a different teacher comes instead

When the visiting teacher hangs up her hat
Writes the date on the board, does this or that
Always remember, you have to say this,
OUR teacher never does that, Miss!
