Who’s ready for a little Halloween fun? Try Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings!
I’ve created a Halloween-themed magnetic poetry template with Google Drawings for you and your students.
There are nearly 100 words in this one, so adapt the words that are appropriate for your grade levels. You can use this as an independent activity, or take it a step further and make it a collaborative activity and see how the poetry evolves. You can use the “magnets” included, or even add your own text boxes to extend the activity.
(Note: The words I created are actually images and cannot be edited, but you can delete them. The images give you more of the “magnet” effect. You can add your own by creating a new text box and filling it with a white background, or right-click on the name box and copy it to use.)
To learn how to create your own, enroll in my free mini-course!

How can I push this out to my school?
Looks like a cool “contest” to me!
Kasey Bell says
Just share the link or add it to an assignment in Google Classroom.

Great idea! A modification perhaps? Could this maybe be done with google slides so that the background is locked and maybe have all the words on a second slide? With so many words bunched down on the bottom, it may take some time to try and find what you are looking for.
Kasey Bell says
Yes, and I have another example in the “Winter” version that uses slides. I added the link to the post above.

It helps to drag the words to the side (the gray area) so you have a little more room.
A technical question – how did you get the drop shadows on the text boxes in Google Drawings? Did you make them in another program?
