Onomatopoeia Poetry

They thought it was even funnier when they actually found out what an Onomatopoeia was. We decided to do some Onomatopoeia poetry for fun. Here is what Ellie came up with:

And I now hope that I never have to type "onomatopoeia" ever again!!!

That is fabulous! I've always loved that word--as well as oxymoron and hyperbole. Language is so fun!

That is a hard word to say, let alone spell. Loved her poem!
