Review: Magnetic Poetry Kit on Teachers Pay Teachers
The Make Your Own Magnetic Poetry Kit download is a free
document on Teachers Pay Teachers. The download packet is a PDF that includes
instructions, a photo, a materials list, and then seven pages full of words
that will become the activity. The printed pages include a wide
assortment of words as well as punctuation and a few suffixes like –ed, -ing,
and –ly. To make the kit, simply print the word pages on sheets of thin
printable magnetic paper. You can find this specialty paper at major retailers
and office supply stores as well as online.
If there's not a large magnetized surface in the classroom accessible to students (such as a large file cabinet), students can use a cookie sheet or other small metal tray of some sort to assemble
the magnetized words into poems, sentences, and other small bits of creative
writing. There’s a wide range of assignment possibilities that come along with this idea, including having students create anything from haiku to acrostics to a fun
collaboration among students.
The activity includes suggestions to use the magnetic poetry
kit as part of a classroom writing station or indoor recess period, but this is
an activity that would have appeal to children and adults alike. Who doesn’t
love to stand in front of a refrigerator full of words to shuffle around? And
when it comes to this method of creative writing, good fun for adults is a
learning opportunity for students!
