We write,we read and we sing poems Halloween / Escrivim, llegim i cantem poemes, preparant Halloween


Un any més anem aprofitem Halloween per a jugar amb la poesia en anglès. Podem llegir poemes, cantar-ne i també escriure'n -inventats o copiats-. Us proposem que que dibuixeu en un full o una cartolina una imatge que faci referència a Halloween -carabassa, fantasme, bruixa, mòmia i tota la resta d'imaginaria monstruosa- i dins escrivim el poema. Després fem una exposició amb tots ells. 

Al blog trobareu molt poemes i cançons de Halloween i, a més, ara en hem seleccionat uns quants més.
Could Be Halloween
Yowling, prowling, growling cat
Why do you switch your tail like that?
Why do your eyes flash gold and green?
Could be--must be--Halloween!
Slinky, inky, blinky cat,
Why do you arch your back like that?
What scary creatures have you seen?
Could be--must be- Halloween!


Magic Mommy Kisses
(or A Halloween Good Night)
Each night I tuck you into bed
I brush my hand across your head
and in each tiny little fist
I place a magic mommy kiss.
Full of love and hope so bright
To keep you safely through the night,
Mommy kisses in your hand
To guide you off to slumberland.
If you should dream of monsters mean
Or witches with faces masked in green,
Of snakes that squeeze you oh-so-tight
Or darkness with no sign of light..
When nightmares hold you stiff with fear
A part of mommy still is near.
Just open up your hand and blow
One mommy kiss and nightmares go.


Boo!
B is for broomsticks witches to fly,
O is outrageous spooks that go by,
O is for orange pumpkins so bright,
These are the signs of a Halloween night.



This is Halloween
(Dorothy Brown Thompson)

Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gate posts,
Giving stare for stare.
Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirring round of fate-cakes,
With a solemn spoon.
Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
Up and down the streets.
Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter--
This is Halloween!


No Tricks - Just Treats!
(Grace Mandry)

It's Halloween - and the sounds are frightening
With cats and bats - and thunder and lightening
With moans and groans and screeches and growls
Screams and shouts, and shrill shrieks and howls 
Yet children in costumes still playfully trot
From house to house and block to block
Not fearing the spirits, translucent in flight
Or the "ghoulies and ghosties," which glow in the night
The children don't run - They've no reason to hide
They anxiously knock and await what's inside
They know that their bounty will be a real treat
As they watch their bags fill up with candy and sweets
