Fifth graders are currently enjoying reading poems by published authors to discuss powerful messages. As part of celebrating Earth Day, 5A students wrote poems inspired by the idea of making a positive impact in our community. Below are just a few samples from the class. We will soon share all of our work created in this unit. We are all world changers!
