We're all 5th grade
students at Lummis Elementary. We all were in a drawing to decide who
was going to be in ThinkQuest Junior. We were the lucky six. Ms. Peters
is our teacher.
About our poetry. All of the poems on this site, not including the Classic poems, were written by us. You'll notice that most of our poems do not rhyme. Instead of rhyming words, we used free verse (or not rhyming). This is because if you are forced to pick rhyming words when you write poems, you are limited to only a few choices. But if you use free verse, you can use any word you want.
All the classic poems we included were written before 1918, to avoid any copyright infringements.
Lummis Elementary is located in Las Vegas, NV. We have about 950 kids at our school. We are also a year round school.
The software we used to build this web site is Dreamweaver and Fireworks 4.
If you have any questions you may email our teacher.
