Monday Made It!

I ran out of polka dot duct tape in the middle of making my big baggie quilt, so I got around to one of the projects that has been on my list for a while.

Magnetic Poetry Kits
I got his wonderful FREEBIE from Jen Runde over at Runde's Room.

I wanted to have a way to use it during Reader's/Writer's Workshop.
I had these containers from another project I wanted to do, but never finished
Got 'em at WalMart (cheap.)

Made labels for the tops of the containers (I have 3 sets.)
I will laminate these before I stick them to the containers, but my laminator is at school.

Then I made a cover for the Magnetic Poetry Notebook
where we can keep copies of the poems that the
students create.
Click here to download a copy of the labels.

I also want to create a collaborative poetry area
using an oil pan that I bought at WalMart where kids
can work together to create poems that can
be added to and melded as the kids work on it.

I am still working on how this is going to look
 and will post a pic when I finish it.

I also worked on individual white boards, a project from Classroom DYI.

If you missed it, you can see them here.

So what have you been up to?

  5. The magnetic poetry is too cute. Then you can really hone in on the words that you would like your students to use too! Great idea! I am your newest follower, found ya over at the linky!

  6. I could not find the link to the words and that what you got from the other site? I would love to do this!!!!!

  7. Kelly,
    Here is a link to Jen's post about the Poetry kits.

  8. I see the possibilities of the magnetic word kit for soooo much (including poetry). I'm thinking students could take a basic sentence (printed in one color) and add modifiers and phrases to stretch it. Oh, the wheels are turning over here.....
    Thanks (I think!) =)
