Fourth Graders get Poems Published in the Cortland Standard
The 4th graders at Smith Intermediate School have been learning about poetry in ELA. They have been reading the book “Love That Dog” by Sharon Creech and reading real poems written by poets like Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and others. They used these poems as inspiration to try writing their own poems. When students learned that the Cortland Standard was going to be printing a “Poetry Page” in the paper on December 26th, many of them wanted to submit their poems to the paper to see if they might be selected, and exciting news - three of our 4th graders will be included in the paper’s “Poetry Page”! Congratulations to Landon Arnold, Jax Ellis, and Sadie Young! They are now officially published poets!
