Winter Poems

As Spring fast approaches here in Chicago it was nice to take a moment to think about winter. Our 2nd and 3rd graders wrote a few sentences about the arctic season and then exchanged them, and used each other’s words as inspiration for their own poems. Here’s what they came up with!


The Wish List

Neia H.

3rd Grade

My favorite thing to do in winter 

is have a snowball fight. 

Snow feels like crunching outside.  Yea!

Hot chocolate tastes like marshmallows. Yea! 

Make a snow angel. Yea!

Stay inside where it’s warm. Yea!

And get warm and watch TV. Yea!


My Life in Winter

Layla H. 

2nd Grade


Winter is not the best thing, 

but it’s more fun than the other months

and you can do a lot of things. 


But the thing I like most 

is hanging out with my family,

and if I could change winter it would be

no snow!


Winter Fun 

Chloe C. 

3rd Grade


Pt. 1 

Winter is cold but still fun

If I could change anything in 

winter, it would be, not being so cold. 

Hot chocolate tastes like coffee, 

walking on the snow feels like ice cream. 


Pt. 2. 

Winter is very cold but 

In your house it’s warm. I like

to stay in at home. School in 

winter is fun, we have winter break, 

winter is so fun.
