Your class is invited to play Poetry Tag!
I am excited to invite your class to join this year's game of Poetry Tag! Last year as I was browsing one of my Favorite blogs, A Year of Reading, by Franki Sibberson and Mary Lee Hahn. A particular post, Poetry Picnic, caught my eye and inspired our first game of Poetry Tag. The first round of Poetry Tag connected classrooms from Colorado to Maine!
What is Poetry Tag?
Poetry tag is simply a digital game of tag (played on VoiceThread). One class shares a poem then tags the next class and so on! The kids love sharing their favorite poems and listening to the poems posted by other classrooms, oh yeah, the kids LOVE the comments from other classes!
Who can play?
ANYONE! Last year’s Poetry Tag connected classrooms from Colorado to Maine. I’d love to see this year’s Poetry Tag expand our connections globally. Maybe we can get our friends in Cape Town South Africa or our friends in Romania to join us! VoiceThread allows us to ignore time zones and reach beyond our classroom walls!
What do I need to join?
Access to group of readers, a few poems, and a computer! That's it! If you or your class would like to be a part of this year Poetry Tag please leave a comment below or send me a tweet @frazierde.
