2nd Grade Poetry Using WordMover

We are starting our poetry unit, not one of my favorites. I like poetry without rhyming or syllable requirements, so we start there first. Tony Vincent suggested using the Word Mover app as a fun way of starting students with poetry creation.

The first assignment (after reading and discussing some poetry) was simply for students to use the app to create a poem.

Students liked the ease of the click and drag words as well as the ability to add words of their own.
