These poetry activities are so fun and engaging that students don't even realize what rigorous learning they are doing!
You will get 6 technology-based activities that can be used as individual lessons or as poetry centers or stations. You will also get 6 technology-free activities to substitute when devices aren't available. All of the apps in the activities are FREE!
Here is an overview of the poetry activities:
1.Closely read by creating a digital or print blackout poem using a cell phone app, IPad app, Paint, or a printed copy of a poem.
2.Learn to summarize tone and pick out turns in poetry by using emojis on student phones or emoji cut-outs on a phone graphic.
3.Work on denotation and connotation using an IPad app (can be done with only one classroom Ipad if using stations) or a tactile learning technique for classrooms without an Ipad.
4.Learn to express mood through photos and illustrations using a cell phone or IPad app or a printed art lecture and drawing frame.
5.Decipher standardized test questions and write ones to mimic your state's test style using standardized test examples.
6.Learn to properly embed quotes via Twitter concepts and a mockup Twitter account.
Each technology activity comes with a linked youtube video to help students learn to use the app, so that means no prep for you!
