About Theme Poem

With the Theme Poem app, elementary students can write poems based on shapes from five different categories: Nature, School, Sports, Celebrations, and Shapes. Within these categories, 32 different shapes are included.
 
By selecting a shape, students are learning how to focus their writing on a particular topic or theme. In addition, as part of the online tool, students are prompted to brainstorm, write, and revise their poems, thus reinforcing elements of the writing process. Students can save their draft poems to revise later. Users learn about and write theme poems, a poem written within the shape of the subject of the poem. Students are assigned to be "poets of the day" and are provided several models to create, illustrate, and present their different poems to the class.
