"Dear President Obama"
poems by 5th graders
 
 

In celebration of the inauguration of President Barack Obama, four fifth grade classrooms from Washington Elementary in Evanston (IL) wrote letter-poems. This idea was inspired by a nation-wide initiative: The Letters to Obama Poetry Project. The students included both serious and more light-hearted pieces of advice--along with questions for the 44th President. Read and enjoy!
