We wrote poems associating colours and emotions in our literacy lessons. Afterwards, we had to make the poem come to life, just like Elliott in the book the Story Machine who once he started typing on his machine, there were pictures appearing.
Using the website http://tholman.com/texter/ we used our colour for our poem as the background and then created shapes with the words.
It is a very fun website, but once you make a mistake you cannot erase it, you have to start over. Some children in the class had to start again 5 times!!!
When creating our shape, we learned that it was important to keep in mind who it was presented to. In order to make it interesting, I did a slushie with blueberries coming out of it.
As a class, we decided to share as many as possible of our work on the blog since it is a safe place to promote our work. As a challenge, we have to try to make some pictures at home and publish it in the comments.
