Get Creative with Winter Magnetic Poetry


Winter-Snow-Wallpaper-High-DefinitionWell, the bad news is… It looks like winter finally arrived in Central PA, bringing with it about five inches of the white stuff and 30 mph winds—ugh! The good news is… My Winter Magnetic Poetry activity arrived just in time!

So, here it is: A brand-new Google Slides activity containing 100+ words and phrases that can be manipulated into a wintry themed 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 winter 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 includes 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.

Classroom Connection:

The Winter 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 developing the original magnetic poetry concept and especially for giving me the inspiration and motivation needed to develop my own version!

Another high five to Alex, one of my Tech Club kids, for helping to create the word boxes for the slide! ♥
