So, here it is: Another Google Slides activity containing 60+ words and phrases that can be manipulated into a fun-filled holiday poem, story, etc.
As with my other creations, 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.
Before you get started on your February adventure, here are a few additional items worth mentioning:
» The background on the Google Slide is locked so students can avoid accidentally moving it, but it can still be changed if you wish to allow them to do so. Just right-click on the slide and select the “Change background…” option.
» Some teachers have requested that I provide a word list for each activity so I have created additional slides that include this info.
Check out a sneak preview below!
Click here to access the template. You will be prompted to download your very own copy of the original and save it to your Google Drive. It can then be shared with your students.
Here’s an example of what students can create using the template:
Here’s a mashup of fifth grade students working on the activity:
The Valentine’s Day 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 high five to Alex, one of my Tech Club kids, for helping to create the word boxes for the slide! ♥
Stay tuned for another Magnetic Poetry template coming to your Google Drive in the very near future…
