A New Poet at Centennial Elementary
On National Public Radio, author Kwami Alexander reads a poem every week. He read the poem "I Dream A World" by Langston Hughes in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Then he asked listeners to send in a poem that had "I dream a world" as part of it. Mr. Alexander chose lines from various poems he had received to create a crowd-sourced poem, to read on the air. One line by Jaqueline O., a 1st grader, was selected to be in the poem.
Here is her poem:
"I dream of seeing foxes walking in a field. I would like to walk with them."
They read the poem on the air!
We are very proud of Jaqueline!
