Poetry + Tech
My class is finishing the school year by wading waist-deep in a poetry unit that is just as much fun for me as it is for them, and I'm already thinking of ways to help teachers extend their poetry lessons as a librarian. I found a cool website that allows kids (and adults!) to use the "magnetic poetry on your refrigerator door" concept online, complete with a virtual refrigerator door. Something about having all those words for the choosing provides an opportunity to play with language that I love to see as a teacher. Check out the magnetic poetry online.
