Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings!
Halloween Fun with Google Drawings!
Who’s ready for a little Halloween fun with Google Drawings? I’ve created a Halloween-themed magnetic poetry template with Google Drawings for you and your students. There are nearly 100 words in this one, so adapt the words that are appropriate for your grade levels. You can use this as an independent activity, or take it a step further and make it a collaborative activity and see how the poetry evolves. You can use the “magnets” included, or even add your own text boxes to extend the activity.
(Note: The words I created are actually images and cannot be edited, but you can delete them. The images give you more of the “magnet” effect. You can add your own by creating a new text box and filling it with a white background, or right-click on the name box and copy it to use.)
Have some fun! Click here to make a copy of the template, and save it to your Google Drive, or use the button above. Want to learn how to use this Force a Copy trick? Directions are in this post: Force a Copy of Google Docs.
Please share your student creations with other teachers! I’ve set up a public folder where you can drop the file in your grade’s folder. This way we can see how this is used at different grade levels and give students a place to view other student work and leave comments and feedback! CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE FOLDER. (Just add on 10/27/17.)
- Make sure you protect student privacy according to the policies by your school. When in doubt, first names only!
I also love to see pics of this in action on Twitter. Use the hashtag #SUL!
