I Am Poem
By: Arizona Blickhan

I am smart and kind
I wonder why the sky is blue
I hear footsteps
I see a TV
I want infinite oreo cookies
I am smart and kind
I pretend to be asleep
I feel a breeze of wind
I touch sand
I worry about my cat
I cry because my dog died
I am smart and kind
I understand I am smart
I say I am amazing
I dream of going to Disneyland
I try to make my bed every day
I hope I get good grades in school
I am smart and kind

I am funny and fun
I wonder why Orion’s Belt is a thing
I hear Jerry my imaginary friend
I see me in my bed sound asleep
I want to breath in space
I am funny and fun
I pretend to be in the Army
I feel lonely
I touch sand
I worry that I will miss a chance to win 1,000 dollars
I cry for no reason
I am funny and fun
I understand that the sun is orange and yellow
I say that 5th grade science is awesome
I dream about being in the Army
I try my hardest to get better at math
I hope I get ungrounded
I am funny and fun

I pretend having candy land
I feel happy and sad
I touch my food to eat it
I worry I am not getting candy

I Am Poem
By: Makynna Wilhelm

I’m nice and flexible
I wonder if I’m going to make it to be a famous gymnast
I hear the crowd chanting my name
I can see the vault, bars, beam, and floor
I want to be on the USA gymnastics team just like Simone Biles
I’m nice and flexible
I pretend to be a famous gymnast
I feel that I will get a 10 two times
I touch the chalk for your hands on the bars
I worry that I will forget my routine
I cry that I will break my arm or blow out my knee
I’m nice and flexible
I understand that I might not make it onto the team
I say that I will
I dream that I will see Simone Biles
I try to practice big flips
I hope that I will make it
I’m nice and flexible
