Golden, you are,
Golden soverigns on your trees.
Golden guineas on your floor,
golden coins of leaves
for us to scuffle through
as they fall
into an October carpet
The children seemed interested in the words that I pointed out in the poem that seem to make the sound they represent, words that are onomatopoeic. (I highlighted those words so you could easily see which I meant.) We discussed what onomatopoeia meant, and then went on our own Autumn Onomatopoeia walk, to see if we heard any sounds we could describe with such words.
Here is the book our class made, based on our walk. Enjoy!
If you take a Fall walk, what onomatopoeic words will you "hear?"
