Halloween
is Here!
We Love It!

Our boo-tiful sensory poems!

Inspired by our Internet project ~ Fall is Here! I Love It! ~ the children created
some amazing sensory poems about a favorite holiday ~ Halloween!
To help us get in the Halloween spirit, we listened to a few new Halloween books.
Two of our favorites were:
Miss Fiona's Stupendous Pumpkin Pies by Mark Kimball Moulton,
and The ABC's of Halloween by Patricia Eubank

Frightening Halloween costumes
and painted faces,
Doorbells ringing their harmless call,
Tasty treats filling me with joy,
Kids yelling "Trick-or treat" on the street,
Pumpkins feel so bumpy on this special night!

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Madeline

Spooky costumes on children
around the neighborhood,
Doorbells ring many times,
Glowing candles in jack-o-lanterns,
Chewing spicy peppermint gum,
My trick or treat bag getting heavier and heavier with each house.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Wes

Scary costumes walk around,
Loud, spooky noises that sound like witches,
Face paint that fills the air,
Great candy that comes in all kinds,
My big bag of treats
that will fill to the top.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Rikki

Jack-o-lanterns glowing all around you,
Kids yelling "Trick or Treat,"
Candles burning in the windows,
Doorbells ring at people's houses.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Nicolas

Sweet Halloween candy in my basket
filling me with joy,
Terrifying skeletons jiggling over me
with their scary company,
My frightening costume startling me,
Smoke from candles in demon pumpkins,
on my front porch.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Alex

Jack-o-lanterns lighting up the night,
Owls hooting in the trees,
Candles burning in the pumpkins,
My costume glowing in the dark,
Delicious candy watering in my mouth,

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Molly

Scary Frankensteins trick or treating,
Skeletons laughing "Ha, Ha, Ha"
as hard as they can,
Painted pumpkins surrounding me,
Delicious candies in my bag,
I can't wait to eat them, them, them.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Gabriel

Pumpkins glowing with lights
on the front steps,
Excited children shouting "Trick or Treat!,"
The sweet smells of candy
floating from my bag,
Delicious Halloween treats filling my mouth,
The silky fabric of my costume
touching my fingers.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Talia

People in spooky costumes,
Yelling "Trick or Treat" door to door,
Sweet smelling Halloween cookies,
Feeling cold after touching doorbells,
I love the taste of chocolate
after trick or treating.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Eric

Brightly lit jack-o-lanterns
sitting on doorsteps,
Doorbells ringing as children scream
"Trick or Treat,"
Smells of sweet candy come from my bag,
Delicious chocolate candy fills my mouth,
Touching the smooth skin
of the pumpkin I carve.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Ilana

Glowing costumes out my window,
Children saying "Trick or treat" at my door,
Green facepaint on my friends,
Delicious candy shaped like skeletons,
Scary pumpkins shining with red eyes.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Kubi

Smiling jack-o-lanterns glowing in the dark,
Many happy children
yelling "trick or treat,"
Hard, bumpy pumpkins sitting on stairways
with candles burning inside,
Sweet, juicy candy making my mouth water.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Johnathan

Carved pumpkins with smiling faces,
Shouts of "trick or treat"
coming from the children and me,
Wonderful smells of chocolate chip cookies
coming from mom's oven,
Tasty licorice candy and
sugary mountain gum melting in my mouth,
Excited fingers touching so many doorbells.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Rickey

Scary monsters dressed in costumes,
Cold air blowing through my mask,
Sweet Halloween candy melting in mouth,
My trick or treat bag getting
heavier all the time,
"Trick or treat" coming from the happy, excited children.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Connor

Spooky costumes on my brother and me,
Scary ghosts saying, "Boo!"
Delicious smells of pumpkin pie
and sweet candy,
Tasty chocolate and candy and gum
fill my mouth,
Touching my costume's weapon
as I walk along.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Sohei

Carved pumpkins sitting on window sills,
Wonderful costumes
everywhere on the street,
Creepy "Boos!" fill the air,
People touching doorbells
from house to house,
Candy - minty, soury, creamy.

Halloween is here! I love it!

by Louise

Allyson's poem coming soon!
Sachy's poem coming soon!
Happy people in costumes
walking down the street,
The words "trick or treat" said
over and over again, non-stop,
The smell of candles burning inside
jack-o-lanterns fills the air,
Tasty, sweet candy pleases me,
Excited fingers pressing many doorbells.

Halloween is here! I love it!
