Winter is coming! Well, at least for some of you. Things are still pretty warm here in Texas!
This is the third installment of magnetic poetry templates that I have shared.
The first one was Collaborative Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings.
The second one was the Halloween version: Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings.
I had a lot fun creating these, but even more fun when I see them used!
I love seeing pictures of these being used in the classroom. It warms my heart in the cold, winter months!

What is Magnetic Poetry?
This digital template takes the idea from the original refrigerator magnet game, where you are challenged to write poetry, phrases, sentences, or even stories with a limited word bank of little magnets.
Google Drawings v. Google Slides
Winter Magnetic Poetry with Google Slides
Here are some of the options Google Slides will give you in this version:
Teachers always ask about locking the background in Google Drawings, so that students don’t accidentally move it. In Drawings, you can’t lock the background, but you can in Slides.
The background in this Google Slides template is “locked,” meaning the background image is set as the background on the slide. (Note: The background can still be changed if you prefer, just right-click on the slide.)
I have included a word list in the template for you and your students.There are over 100 words.
(This word list was a collaboration, generated by students from Lynn Kleinmeyer’s school in Iowa, words from the glossary in Winter: The Coldest Season of All, and some extra articles and nouns to bring it all together.)

This template was originally created for the Winter Around the World Project in 2015.
The Winter Around the World Project is a globally collaborative project in which students share their winter stories, songs, poems, illustrations, and photographs. It is open to students of ALL ages around the world!
The wonderful Shannon Miller and Lynn Kleinmeyer asked me to collaborate on the Winter Around the World Project and create a special winter edition of magnetic poetry. It was an honor to collaborate with these dedicated librarians and educational leaders!
The winter projects was gathered in this collaborative Google Slides presentation, then be published as an eBook that was shared around the globe!
