Creativity, collaboration and communication are skills developed in your classrooms everyday.  Upcoming poetry units give students the unique opportunity to explore their creative side and share thoughts, ideas or a few laughs with their classmates.  If you add a digital component, students can share their original works globally.  Grandparents, aunts and uncles can all enjoy the students’ writing.  Poetry comes to life if students record their work with emotion and intonation.  

With apps like Adobe Voice, Vocaroo or Voice Record students can create audio recordings of their poetry.
