I enjoyed reading all of the acrostics and think it is wonderful that you young people are using the creative ability that God has given you!
It was a teacher who first made writing exciting for me so many years ago. I live in Norwood New York, which is just south of Massena, in northern NY State. Keep up the GREAT writing all of you!!!

From East Texas: There are fascinating magic words for kids at that age. "Slime" is a favorite. There is a kid's site named NeoPets; lots of cool games and one of the prime favorites is "Wheel of Slime" where they win NeoPoints. Also, it is amazing how quickly the kids will pick up and start composing limericks. Nice work here, Molly :-)

I'm no kid by any means, but I sure liked this charming piece. I think it is wonderful to exposure your youngsters to this wonderful genre. There is nothing lovelier on paper than a well-written poem.

Having been a teacher for thirty years, I see the creativity at work in this exercise as these young students activate their vivid and sometimes wild imaginations. :)

That's good work class, you know some useful words.

I hear you love poetry so I'll introduce one of my favourite poets Spike Milligan who loved to write for children. Spike knew poems can be silly because it's sounds that matter (like Hissssssssss) or Nong.

Here is one of his poems, read it and if you like it I'd love to see what kind of poem you can make with silly sounds.

On the Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

I love Halloween too, and these acrostics are very good and the students should be proud of themselves for coming up with the words. I live in Alpena, Michigan, and I think it is really great that young people can get into the spirit of writing poetry. Thank you children, and thank you Molly for posting these adorable acrostics.

Howdy, students, from North Central Texas! Just want to tell you how delightfully scary these Halloween writes are! Nothing too scary but enough to give a BOO! Well done, children. :) And Teacher: anything you do to get the little ones interested in poetry gets an A+ in my book. :)
