Things That Go Bump In The Night

This week our 4th graders at Perez explored all things Monsters. We started off our session by doing exquisite corpse drawings of monsters. Each table passed around their sheet of paper to everyone in the group and at the end we all got to see the wild and zany creatures that were created. Then we read “I Eat Kids- Yum Yum” by Dennis Lee and got to work on poems about the monsters they drew. Enjoy this weeks poets, as well as a few of our artists and the monster masterpieces they so brilliantly drew. 

Hug Loff

Alfie H. 

Gather around *Stomp* did 

you hear that sound! It sounds

like that time of month

where Hug Loff comes around.

Even if he looks sweet and 

kind, he can  grind you into 

slime. He makes you gather 

with his sweet smell of

cotton candy! He is in our 

basement hunting down his prey. 

“Give me a hug!” he will yell

out to see you. Funny face

Every time he sees someone, death

is waiting. He will hug you

without a might, and kill

you at that very sight. 

So remember my words cause

if you see him Run. Away. For. 

Your. Life. 

I Eat People

Naythen D. 

A person came out of an abandoned 

apartment it was at night like 10:00 pm. 

He looked in the distance, he saw a 

shadowy figure. He flashed his flashlight. 

It ran so fast, that it disappeared. He

felt like something was watching. 

The wind blew “Shshsh”. He heard a branch 

crack, he was frightened. He saw red eyes

glowing like fire. He smelt something, 

it smells like sewer, eats people, he looks

like nasty, ugly, and horrible. He says “ I

see you.”

A Monster

Damiam Martinez

It looks like 

an evil bunny

Smells like smelly socks

It gives out free money

It says googoogaga

and I’m under 

your bed.
