Spring Fling!

Open the windows
Swing wide the doors
Roll up the carpets
Dance on the floors
Unshut the house
That stuffy old thing
Let in the light
Let in the spring!
Take off the roof
And shout to the sky
"It feels like spring
AND SO DO I!!"


COLUMBUS

In fourteen hundred and ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue.
For seventy two days he headed west.
Then new land was sighted from the crow's nest.
Long years ago he showed he was brave.
On this special day, his memory we save.


Pumpkin Head

We bought a pumpkin big and  round
 that lived the summer through
 without an eye to look at things...
 and now it looks through two.

It used to be all dark  inside
 when growing on the vine,
 but now it has a toothy smile
 and face that's full of shine.

~Aileen Fisher

Pumpkins

Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins,
Green pumpkins,
Yellow pumpkins,
Big fat orange pumpkins,
These are just a few.

Sad pumpkins,
Surprised pumpkins,
Horrid frightening scary pumpkins,
Droopy drippy drooly pumpkins,
Rotten pumpkins, too.

Cheery pumpkins,
Sunny pumpkins,
Don't forget friendly pumpkins.
Last of all, best of all,
I like jolly pumpkins.

After they identify the many adjectives in this October poem,  the teacher
hands out a form of the poem deleting the adjectives and substituting the
noun with something else such as "cats." The students work alone or in pairs to come up with adjectives to make a new poem.

Scarecrows

We're the  farmer's scarecrows

     We scare away the birds,

We keep the  farmer's corn safe

Without any  words.

But when  Halloween comes

We jump out  of the ground

And we  scare the boys and girls

When they  come walking 'round.


SCARECROW  CHANT
 Scarecrow, scarecrow,
 How scary can you be?
 You scared away the crows  (change animals)
 But you can't scare me!
 No, you can't scare me!


An Autumn Day
 Pumpkins in the cornfield,
 Gold among the brown,
 Leaves of rust and scarlet
 Trembling slowly down;
 Birds that travel southward,
 Lovely time to play;
 Nothing is as pleasant
 As an autumn day!
 -Carmen Lagos Signes


October Leaves
October leaves are lovely
 They rustle when I run
 Sometimes I make a heap
 And jump in them for fun!

 Autumn leaves float quietly down
And form a carpet on the ground
 But when those leaves are stepped upon
 Listen for the crackling sound!



Our Tree

When spring comes round, our apple tree
  is very full of flowers,
 And when a bird sits on a branch the
 petals fall in showers.
 When summer comes round, our
 apple tree is very full of green,
 And everywhere you look in it there
 is a leafy screen.
 When autumn comes round, our
 apple tree is full of things to eat
 And apples hang from every branch to tumble at our feet.
 When winter comes round, our apple tree is full of snow and ice,
 And rabbits come to visit it...
 We think our tree is nice.

Jack-'o-Lantern
 Jack-'o-lantern ,Jack-'o-lantern
 You are such a funny sight
 As you sit there in the window
 Looking out at the night
 You were once a little pumpkin
 Growing on a sturdy vine
 Now you are a Jack-'o-lantern
 See the candle light shine.


Thanksgiving Time
 When all the leaves are off the boughs,
 And nuts and apples gathered in,
 And cornstalks waiting for the cows,
 And pumpkins safe in barn and bin,
 Then Mother says, "My children dear,
 The fields are brown, and autumn flies;
 Thanksgiving Day is very near,
 And we must make thanksgiving pies!


 All in a Word
 By Aileen Fisher
 T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.
 H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.
 A for autumn's frosty art, and abundance in the heart.
 N for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember.
 K for kitchen, kettles' croon, kith and kin expected soon.
 S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds.

That spells ~~~THANKS---for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving


At Grandma's House

 I like the taste of turkey
 Any time throughout the year
 But it never
 seems to taste as good
 As when Thanksgiving's here.

Could be it's all the trimmings
 That are cooked with it to eat-
 But I think it's
eating at Grandma's house
 That makes it such a treat!

Snowflakes
I like snowflakes. Ask me why. Why?
Because they fall from the sky,
Because the seem to dance and fly,
Because they pile up so high,
Because they are so white and dry,
Because they melt in my hand,
Because they're quiet when they land,
Because, because, because, that's why,
I like snowflakes!


What I Love about Winter

Frozen lakes
 Hot pancakes
 Lots of snow
 How cocoa
 Skates and skis
 Evergreen trees
 Funny hats
 Thermostats
 Sunsets blaze
 Holidays
 Snowball fights
 Fireplace nights
 Chimneys steaming
 Winter dreaming.
 ~Douglas Florian~


Winter Inside

Winter is cold.
 Winter is ice.
 But winter inside
 Is cozy and nice.

Winter is snow.
 Winter is sleet.
 But winter inside
 Is fireplace feet.

Winter is bitter.
 Winter is biting.
 But winter inside
 Is very inviting.
 ~Douglas Florian~

Spring
 Today is the day when bold kites fly,
 When cumulus clouds roar across the sky.
 When robins return, when children cheer,
 When light rain beckons spring to appear.
 Today is the day when daffodils bloom,
 Which children pick to fill the room,
 Today is the day when grasses green,
 When leaves burst forth for spring to be seen.
 -Robert McCracken

It's Spring
 Bees soon will buzz,
 Rabbits soon will hop,
 Birds soon will sing,
 Frogs soon kerplop,
 Chicks soon will peep,
 Kids soon will play,
 A fine spring day!
 -Robert McCracken

Sunflower
Sunflower, sunflower, standing straight and tall,
 Sunflower, sunflower, you're the tallest of them all!
 Sunflower, sunflower, when your seeds fall to the ground,
 Sunflower, sunflower, by the squirrels they'll be found!
