My students need 11 books of verse and 2 novels about the power of poetry to serve as writing models.
Robert Frost once said, "I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering." Inspire our next generation of leaders by allowing them to discover themselves through poetry.
Our fourth grade classroom is bursting at the seams with creativity and individuality.
My goal is to not only educate my students, but to also inspire them to find their passion for life and learning. Throughout the year, the students are exposed to a variety of experiences that enable them to not only soar academically, but also develop the traits that will enable them to be successful in all avenues of life.
Through the use of these poetry resources, our students will be able to understand the importance of self-expression. They will be able to not only immerse themselves in a variety of poets, but they will have the resources to find the poet within themselves. My students need a collection of published verse to read, love, and use as writing models.
Imagine a world where everyone is able to express their feelings and beliefs in a peaceful manner.
Your donation and a collection of poetry will inspire our future leaders on a journey of self-awareness and expression.Read More
