Have Some Fun with Thanksgiving Magnetic Poetry!


happy turkey dayA few weeks ago I shared images of an a super cool Halloween Magnetic Poetry activity I completed with some fifth grade students using a Google Slides template I downloaded from Kasey Bell’s Shake Up Learning blog. It was such a tech-sation that I decided to give this same concept a try for Thanksgiving. Well, the only problem with that idea was that after contacting Kasey, I discovered that she didn’t have one available for this particular holiday.

Enter Plan B: Just create one of your own—which is exactly what I did! So, here it is: My very own version of Thanksgiving Magnetic Poetry containing about 80 words that can be manipulated into a holiday themed poem, story, etc. Check it out below!

Click here to make your very own copy of the template and save it to your Google Drive.

FYI: Just like Shake Up Learning’s original creation, the word boxes are actually images and cannot be edited; however, they can be deleted. Plus, additional words can be generated by creating a new text box and filling it with a white background.

Classroom Connection:

The Thanksgiving Magnetic Poetry template can be used in a variety of ways as either an independent or collaborative writing activity. Utilize the “magnets” included and/or add your own text boxes to extend the activity—although I think part of the fun/challenge is to just use the words provided.

A huge shout out to edtech guru Kasey Bell for the inspiration needed to develop this resource!
