This week Ms. Murray’s 4th graders got to work on sound poems. We discussed all the different things that we hear in the various environments we live in. We talked about what we hear in the morning, at night, at home, at school and outside. Students got to work on their pieces and they put so much effort into writing about the orchestras of sound around them! I really hope you enjoy them.
At home I hear my dog
barking at a toy
my brother’s cars crashing
and my sister’s phone playing anime videos
what I hear outside
police cars driving back and forth
people cheering at a football game Go! Go! Go!
and blue and yellow birds chirping
make me happy
what I hear at school
my teacher speaking about prime numbers and factors
students speaking about boys
and people across from my classroom talking
I hear my dog playing. Squeak!
I hear my grandma cooking. Sizzle.
I hear my phone’s music. Do ba do ba
I hear cars in traffic. Honk! Honk!
I hear skateboards. Stccc stccc.
I hear bikes and running. Ring ring!
I hear friends speak. Blah blah.
I hear the breeze. Fzzzzssss
I hear voices softly. La la la.
I hear pencils tapping. Tap tap.
