April is Poetry Month

8th Graders!  Do you know these words?? http://edudemic.com/2012/12/100-words-high-school-students-should-know/

This month we are hard at work in lab creating poetry.  Below are links to 4 poem generators.

Prior to this we worked on acrostic and free verse poems.  Younger students (1st-2nd grade) worked in Microsoft Word to construct their acrostic poetry.  Older students used Microsoft Power Point.  Why Power Point?  The program allowed students to focus on different design elements and practice animations.  There was more freedom for placement of clip art as well.  They did an excellent job!  Below is the template they used to get started and some samples of student work.
