Poetry Month is here! Some new apps are on our iPads, all of which are by Read Write Think.
First up is Word Mover, which is magnetic poetry for the iPads. Students can choose words from a word bank or write their own, and save, share, or print their poems.
Theme Poems introduces students to theme or shape poems, and has various images for students to choose from to brainstorm and write their poem.
Acrostic Poems has students brainstorm and write acrostic poems using any word of their choice. It also gives "hint" words for each letter to help students write their poems.
Finally, the Haiku app teaches students how to write a haiku, and includes brainstorming with syllable counts to help students get familiar with counting the syllables when writing their haiku.
