Sound Poems @ Moos Elementary (4th Grade)

Today at Moos, we talked about sound. We discussed the difference between sound words and onomatopoeias and how we can use both in our poems to be descriptive and detailed! Then, we shared our poems and practiced reciting nice and loud.

Sound Poem
Gregoire G.

I hear the microwave dinging.
I hear the pencil sharpening.
I hear footsteps stomping.
I hear the loud tapping of my PS4 controller.
I hear the slam of my computer.
I hear the pop of a home run.

I hear beeping cars.
I hear cars drifting.
I hear thunder rumbling.
I hear chairs banging.
I hear recorders playing.
I hear the basketball swishing.


Miraculous Sounds 
Imani G. 

I hear the birds chirping.
I hear the phone ringing.
I hear the bell jittering.
I hear the dogs growling.
I hear the shower water running.
I hear the loud speaker yelling.
I hear the wind whistling.
I hear the TV blaring.
I hear the kids chatting.
I hear the cars drifting.
I hear the kids arguing.
I hear the markers squeaking.


Sound Time Loop
Jamalis S. 

I hear thunder rumbling outside.
I hear my mom yelling at my dad.
I hear non-stop school bells ringing.
I hear trees rustling in the wind.
I hear faint booming music downstairs.
I hear computer keys tapping.
