Shape Poems

Written by Chase 

February is a great time to practice poetry writing skills and experiment with a new form. It's a perfect opportunity to take a fresh look at poetry and descriptive language. 
A trip to computer lab introduced students to a new site -festisite. This site is easy to use and yields some impressive artwork. After students wrote their poems, they typed the text into the text box. Next they clicked "Layout text" and their text appeared as a shape poem inside a heart. The image is delivered as a PDF which makes it easy for students to print and save their creations.  It's clever and fun!

Room 102 is decorated for the season with student poetry.
