Back by popular demand… It’s Edutech for Teachers’ version of Halloween Magnetic Poetry, a Google Drawings activity containing nearly 100 words, or “magnets”, that can be rearranged to compose all types of writing samples.
So, if you’re ready to combine a little bit of holiday fun with Google Apps, then be sure to check out this must-try activity for you and your class! Here’s how it works…
And end up transforming it into something spook-tacular like this:
Last year I actually incorporated this activity into my fifth grade Computers class. Besides allowing the students to have some Halloween fun with related words and images, it was a great opportunity for them to become more familiar with copying a template into their Google Drive account and utilizing Google Drawings.
Here they are getting all creepy with it!
The Halloween 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.

A huge shout out to edtech guru Kasey Bell for creating and sharing this super cool idea!
