Christmas poems

Students in Mr. Dwayne L. Henry’s third grade class at Paradise Elementary School wrote these Christmas poems in celebration of the holidays.

Christmas Time
By Sierra Bowman

It is Christmas,
The jolly time of the year.
Let’s enjoy,
I get stuff from Sears.

Open your presents,
Get around the tree.
See all the things,
Sit on your knees.

We go sledding,
In the snow.
We have lots of fun,
We yell, ‘Whoa! ‘

Christmas
By Tyler Bryant

I love this Holiday,
I’ll get a new skateboard.
We eat dinner for Christmas,
I will get a new Ford.

I’ll go outside to play in the snow,
My mom, dad and brother.
We will spend time with our family,
I do not want another.

Christmas
By Brandon Coble

I like presents,
We get lots of toys.
I play a lot,
There are lots of boys.

I get out of bed,
We go shopping.
Play in the snow,
Look in the stocking.

I play with toys,
Play with my brother.
We play a game,
Play with my mother.

Christmas
By Jacob Drake

Time to put the lights up,
It is going to be fun.
Snowballs in the air,
Now we need to run.

Let’s sip our hot chocolate,
Gather around the tree.
Let’s sing all are songs,
Now let’s go and ski.

Christmas in Paradise
By Delaney Flaherty

We get ready for family,
We have to clean our rooms.
We go down stairs and wash,
We sweep it down with a broom.

I go to the store,
I find a turkey.
I go home and stuff it,
And I eat beef jerky.

My Christmas Tradition
By Alexandra Fowler

I get a lot of money,
Let’s open our presents now.
We get pictures,
I got my sister a cow.

I love to get Webkinz,
We wait to open the door.
My Mammaw gives us candy,
The presents are on the floor.

Christmas Day
By Nicolas Gross

Christmas is cool,
Christmas is fun.
Christmas is a Wesome,
We like to run.

We like cool things,
Like them pretty lights.
Decorations are cool,
They are so bright.

We like igloos,
They are cool.
Once it melted,
It became a pool.

Christmas Fun
By Kenneth Hamme

Christmas is fun,
It is the best.
Lots of presents,
There’s no time to rest.

Christmas is here,
It is really fun.
Everything is neat,
Now I’m on the run.

Christmas
By Shane Kecken

Christmas is here,
Time to go to Grandma’s.
She is really great,
I even have a grandpa

We like to gather,
Around the Christmas tree.
Open the presents,
Santa won’t need a key.

Christmas Is Here
By Scott Lawson

My mother says, ‘Christmas is here.’
With all the presents here and there,
Santa comes down the chimney.
My brother got a toy bear,

We will eat the Christmas dinner,
We make a deal.
The turkey is here.
We ate the yummy meal.

We open the presents
My brother gets a toy car,
My sister gets a toy doll.
I get a big candy bar,

Christmas
By Josh Lenhart

I like when Christmas comes,
I like to play in the snow.
Sledding is a lot of fun,
I know how to throw.

We set up a Christmas tree,
I throw the snowball at my brother.
I go inside to play with the cars,
I used to play with my mother.

I open presents,
I wake my mom up.
I made a snow angel,
I give her a cup.

My Christmas
By Kali McWilliams

Christmas is lots and lots of fun,
People love to celebrate this day.
But this day is to have lots of fun,
So you better get ready to pray.

I love to decorate,
But do you love to do it?
So get ready to sing,
But still decorate a bit.

Snow is just so cool,
But it gets chilly,
So get ready to say “Brrrrrr,”
It sounds so silly.

Christmas
By Lacey Roller

I love this holiday,
It is so fun.
To play with my toys,
Then I run and run.

I usually get what I ask for,
But sometimes I don’t get.
But that is ok,
I’ll receive good things, I bet.

Christmas
By Jena Stanton

Christmas is here,
Bells are ringing.
White snow is falling,
Children are singing.

Santa Claus will come,
Reindeer are flying.
Presents are coming,
Children are spying.

Under the Christmas tree,
We get fun stuff to play.
There are some Teddy Bears,
There is also fun clay.

Christmas
By Noah Sutherland

Time to put up the Christmas lights,
Where did the lights go everybody?
There are no more Christmas lights,
They are falling down, OH !NO!

Time to get the cool presents,
Everybody gather close.
Did that, done that,
Now to watch Christmas shows.

Building a snowman is so much fun,
You put the hat on his cold head.
Use a carrot for his long nose,
Make a snow pile that looks like his bed.

It’s Christmas
By Brittany Wright

I love sledding,
Sledding is cool.
Sledding is awesome,
Sledding rules.

Christmas rules,
I get toys.
Bratz and Bratz,
Even some boys.

I like skiing,
It is fun.
I like to ski,
While I run.
