Fifth-graders put poetry online
Fifth-graders are usually not excited about writing poetry, said Katie Tate, St. Croix Central Middle School fifth grade teacher. But this year, Tate's class was very excited about their poetry project.
"They sat every afternoon for an hour with a laptop on their desk," Tate said. "It didn't get old for them."
Instead of approximately 40-page poetry books, Tate's 26 students created poetry websites this year.
"It just makes an ordinary project more fun," Tate said.
