Sound Poems @ Moos Elementary

Today at Moos, we narrowed in on one of our five senses: sound! We thought of some of our favorite sound words like “boom!” Then we thought of where we hear the most sounds: at school, home, and outside. From there, we wrote poems that included all of the sounds together!

Yo Escucha 
Kendra T.  

Yo escucha los pajaritos cantando.
Yo escucha los grillos.
Yo escucha a la maestra.
Yo escucha a los carros pasando.
Yo escucha a la pelota rebotar.
Yo escucha a las ranas asiendo “gulp.”
Yo escucha el cellular asiendo “ring.”
Yo escucha la tele.
Yo escucha a mi papa.
Yo escucha a mi hermanita llorando.
Yo escucha las perritos ladrando.
Yo escucha los gatos asiendo “meow.”
Yo escucha patos asiendo “quack.”


I Hear
David R. 

I hear cars beeping.
I hear dogs barking.
I hear the bell dinging.
I hear kids screaming.
I hear the video games beeping.
I hear the phone pounding.
I hear my mom yelling.
I hear my TV.
I hear the table moving.
I hear the water splashing.
I hear the wind swooshing.
I hear dogs barking.
I hear the gate creeking.

I hear the cars beeping.
I hear the dogs barking.
I hear the bell dinging.

I hear the stuffed animals sizzle.

I hear bees buzzing.
I hear unicorns roaring.
I hear snakes hissing.
I hear sleepy kids snoring.
I hear people playing and saying yayyy!
I hear swimmer splashing.
