4th Grade Sound Collaboration

For our 2nd session, 4th graders in Mr. Adenuga’s class reviewed the senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. We then collaborated on a “Sound Poem.”

Sound Poem

We hear sounds of life

and siblings talking too much, a brother
who sounds like a hyena
we hear sounds of people arguing
babies crying
people saying things like
“you fuu-nny!” and “Do your work!”
some people play computer games loudly

We hear outdoor sounds
kids playing outside, kicking rocks around

We hear guns shooting

and dogs barking angrily

we hear violence



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
-Jessica M.
