The sounds of night


We are exploring poetic writing and the effective use of Onomatopoeia.
Onomatopoeia is a word that imitates a sound or action.

Here are some of our poems. Can you spot the onomatopoeia?


The sounds of night

In the dark,I was scared, walking outside.
The trees went whoosh as the wind was blowing.

The moon was hiding in the sky, our dog howled longingly.
It was raining, drip drip drip.

It was warm in my bed and I saw the stars twinkling.
The rabbit was eating a crunchy carrot in the back yard.

My shadow spooked me out.Yikes!
Thought it was a ghost,but no, just possums screeching in the woods.
I was scared in the dark.
