This week at Dever the 7th graders reconnected with onomatopoeia and the other group completed alliteration. The 7th graders wrote pieces to welcome in spring and the activities it brings into their lives. I asked them how to bring in their favorite activities through sound. Below are some of the highlights.
Make some Noice!
As I run my feet slaps against the hot concrete CLAP CLAP
I dive into the water with a switch and center with a. crash
My stomach turns red as I howl in pain
I plash in the water
as my back sizzles in the sun,
I approach the concrete with squishes and splats under my feet.
I sign with relief,
I made it back to the shore
Run down the field
As the grass peeled
People using their bodies as shields
The end is getting revealed
I zoom past all of them.
The smell of the butter on
the pan sizzling, popping,
I put the batter on the pan
The smell of the pancake batter is bomb!
the bacon is the oil sizzling splashing flashing!
the crunch of the bacon and the softness of the pancake is good!
Jogging in the spring
Jogging is a hobby I DO
Every springs every summer I DO
When jogging the sun is like a charger
it charges me to do more jogging
the beautiful sounds of the forest
birds chrippin, river swirling, legs joggin’
Music makes me faster
Music makes me faster
I want to head bang to music
music is my buxx jam
music in smash bros
music makes me zoom faster
The water canceling out all the extra noise
that’s unnecessary in this world
while people chatter.
The splashing is warm water on you
gentle skin submerging
you as you dive in the depths
of the fishes home with you fill body.
The blindness in your eyes as the closest people to your heart splash you.
All that your ears can hear is the happiness in their voices as happy
as you all could be.
Your wet hair and dropping water as the cold air whooses
against your skin
and look back wishing you would return one again.
Driving to a hockey game zooming through the streets
Arriving at the hockey game I start to clap and say wahoo!
When their on the ice you hear the puck whooshing
When they get a goal the buzzer goes off and theme music starts to play.
When they fight the crowd starts to clap
When its loud it starts to achoo
Hina howl at the hilarious house horses make hint howel
Green gems are gorgeous gems which are green and shine glamorously
Casts can’t cook but cats can crawl creepy like cows creep cowardly
Marlyn mouths “mens” at the mitten and “moo” at the mischievous monkey names Manio that mouths “moo” back.
Jhene juggles the jug of jay jiggle with the joy of jay
Green girls get google grades for the green glow brand glue
Elephants eat extravagant eggs on excellent elephant elastic eat the ease of the elephant extravagantly.
Zaira zucchini xylophone on the way zi zo sari sat the zucchini with zay.
