Do you hear what I hear?

4th Grade

For today’s session, we talked about sound and all the different things we hear daily. We started off by trying to be as quiet as we could for a whole minute and then shared all the things that we heard. Giggles, shoes and desks squeaking, machines outside were just some of the things that made up the symphony of sound around us. Enjoy the poems! 


I Hear



I hear the birds and the cat 

I hear the kids playing outside

the wind blowing I hear screaming noise at school 

I hear my mom playing music in the house


I Hear



I hear my sister screaming about the phone

My brother playing plants- V-zombies music

My mom screaming at Buster

the air moving

kids playing outside

the news on TV

kids talking and running

teachers screaming

kids getting in trouble
