Fun with Halloween Magnetic Poetry


ghost silhouetteIf you’re ready to combine a little bit of holiday fun with Google Drawings, then Shake Up Learning has created and shared a really cool must-try activity for you and your class: A Halloween-themed magnetic poetry template containing nearly 100 words.

The students start out with a creepy palette that looks something like this:

And end up transforming it into something spook-tacular like this:

Just as an FYI: I encouraged my students to use as many nouns and adjectives as possible in a creative way.

I actually incorporated this activity into my fifth grade Computers class. Besides allowing them 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 Drawing.

Here they are getting all creepy with it!

Classroom Connection:

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 sharing this super cool resource! Stay tuned for my very own twist on the magnetic poetry concept coming to a blog post near you…
