2nd Graders Poetry Unit

We worked on a poetry unit this past week. Students studied and wrote diamante, cinquain, and haiku. For each type of poem they were able to choose any app that allowed text and illustration. Most opted for My Story but some also chose Drawing Pad/Pages or Drawing Pad/Strip Design.

We also worked on some less traditional types of poetry, such as color poems and question poems. For the color poem students created a 4-8 page book in My Story app. On each page they imaged themselves as a color and described what they would be if they were that color. For the question poem they had to choose an object and ask it 4-8 wondering questions. Finally, students wrote tongue twisters and created a shape poem using the Path On app.
