Last week, Hale’s summer program students dabbled in the world of fantasy with their writing. Our 3-6th graders first spent time creating their own monsters with interesting back stories to match. Some of our creatures were based on monsters we already knew, while others were completely original creations. After drawing images of their monsters, students then brought their characters to life with poems. Some of our students also got to write silly found poems together. Check out some of our scary (and funny) poems below.
I’m the soul monster!
I’m as hated as the chancla
As scary as death. Scarier than when your mom goes through your phone.
BANG! You hear downstairs
You look and see that one thing
your grandma gave you before
she passed on the floor
I’m the monster that lives in your closet!
I am a chocolate monster
I chase kids
I put them in my chocolate
I look like an egg
I say “Rooooor!”
And if you eat too much chocolate
I will get you
Yes, because I like spaghetti-Os.
I would say “do your work and pay attention in class more.”
Don’t be ashamed of your hair.
Move on from him, he’s not worth it!
What is your real name?
I want to know it.
#5 She like you, do it.
