Featured Student Writer: Johnny Warren

johnnywarren2Johnny Warren is a second grader at PVPV Rawlings Elementary School in Florida.  He lives with his mom, dad, two older brothers, and a younger sister.  His hobbies include the piano, video games, Lego, theater classes, and playing with his friends and sister.  He also loves to write his own super-hero comic books.

Johnny’s poem, “The Storm“, was selected as a Top Ten Winner in the Fall 2012 poetry contest.  Johnny’s teacher asked his class to write about something that scared them, and as storms have always made him nervous, Johnny thought that writing about it would help his fear.

When he grows up, Johnny would like to become a “scientific inventor” and a rock star.  He is also looking forward to writing more poems and essays in the future.

Featured Student Writer: Jared Ang

jaredangFirst-grader Jared Ang attends Harding Elementary School in California.  His poem, “In the Rain Forest“, was selected as a Top Ten Winner in the K-3 age division for the Fall 2012 poetry contest.

Jared’s hobbies include reading, swimming, practicing karate, and playing the piano.  He also enjoys watching TV.  His favorite movies are Madagascar, Ice Age, and Wild Kratts.  These movies helped to inspire Jared to write his poem about the animals in the rain forest.

When he grows up, Jared hopes to become a pilot or doctor.  He also wants to write a book about animals because he loves animals and knows a lot of other kids love animals, too.  “Next time maybe I’ll write a poem about the ocean” Jared explains, “because I like to watch the fishes and the sea animals living in the deep ocean.”
