magnetic poetry twist with google slides

Everyone loves magnetic poetry sites and slides, especially the great examples Kasey Bell has shared. These inspired me to create a magnetic poetry google slide deck using a favorite book! I love the useful ‘grab text’ feature from google keep. So handy. I used it to lift the text from one page of Harry Potter book one. Then I added the converted text to slides and moved words to tiles for the random poetry activity.  (I didn’t take the time to do the tiles as well as Kasey does in her tutorial). Students can make their own copy of the slides/page you’ve selected for them, or do it themselves with their current interesting read. You could add in a nonfiction text too, use this as an engaging activity to pique interest in the next read aloud… so many ideas and so little time! Even give the challenge of magnetic poetry haiku or cinquain, can’t wait to try more book pages to see what we can come up with. Google slide example with keep here.
