“I am from” Poem

To do this poem, I first start with students writing a floor plan of their house.  They label on it memories they have.  The next day I share I am from poems previous students have done and I share mine.  Students use a template to write their poem. Once they have quality poems, they are ready to put them on the computer.  They need to choose a black or white template and type their poem.  They choose pictures from a digital kit that I made and are allowed to use one picture of themselves on photo booth.  Once they have typed their poem and put in pictures, then they add music and record themselves reading their poems.  This whole project took about a week from start to finish.  They enjoyed watching one another’s poems, although I would probably do a ‘art walk’ style viewing rather than whole class watching all of them because they did get a little bored at the end.
