Interactive Tools Help Kids with the Craft of Writing Poems

I love to read my students' poems, and these interactives and poetry collections provide them inspiration and guidance. I've seen sparks of creativity fly for children and teens alike. The collections of poems include classic favorites as well as works by contemporary authors AND kids. And readers have added another dozen of their favorite websites to the readers' recommendations list at the end of this article.

Although they are enthusiastic, my students sometimes find writing verse to be a challenge. They struggle with choosing just the right word. Or they are unsure if they had the right form. How do you write a haiku? How about an acrostic or a limerick?

That's where these writing tools and examples help. Many of them have forms, tips and scaffolding. A few even give your kids the opportunity to submit their finished works of poetic art for online publication. Added bonus - many of the sites also have lesson plans for teachers.

#1 ReadWriteThink Poetry Interactives

ReadWriteThink is one of the foremost websites in providing online reading and writing activities for students and lesson plan ideas for teachers. They have several interactives and an app kids can use to wax poetic.

Each interactive is accompanied by lesson plan ideas for students at various grade levels. Be sure to print or copy each completed poetic masterpiece! They cannot be saved online.

The interactives described below provide step-by-step instructions for creating word mover, acrostic, diamante, letter, riddle and shape writing poems.

Word Mover Interactive

The Word Mover interactive and Word Mover app for iPad invite kids to verse by manipulating word tiles. Students can add their own word tiles, choose backgrounds, and share their poems by email, Facebook, Twitter and more.

Acrostic Poem Interactive

The Acrostic Poem interactive provides a form where you pick your main word, then write words that start with the letters of the main word. After you brainstorm your acrostic words, you type in the ones that best describe your main word. The interactive will suggest other words when you point at a letter in the main word. You can then print your work or go back and make changes.

Diamante Poem Interactive

Using the Diamante Poem interactive, kids create verse in the shape of a diamond. They select a central theme, then use adjectives, -ing verbs, and nouns to "paint" the theme. The interactive has examples to guide the poet. There are also pop-ups on the fill-in-the-blank diamante form to help guide the student through the parts of speech that make up this form.

Letter Poem Creator

Letter Poem Creator is designed for students in grades 3-5. Using the example in the interactive, students insert line breaks, thus turning narrative into verse. The model explains the process of breaking a letter into ideas, and stanzas.

Riddle Poem Interactive

Middle school kids in grades 6-8 can "riddle me this" poetically. The Riddle Interactive helps students to make use of simile, metaphor and metonymy. Students design a riddle around an answer, such as a door or grass. They brainstorms words associated with the answer, their synonyms, antonyms. The best riddles use as many of the senses as possible.

Shape Theme Poems Interactive

The Shape Theme Poems interactive was designed to help elementary students gel thoughts based on a theme in the shape of the theme-related object. This interactive tool provides 32 different shapes around such themes as sports, nature and school to spur creativity.

Shape Theme Poems is now also available as a free app for iPad, iPhone and Android.


#2 JogLab

JogLab's Word Finder is a great tool to jog kids' memories for associated words to use in specific types of poems. The poems emphasized on this site include acrostics, mnemonics, and backronyms. What's a backronym? JogLab explains all.

The site is loaded with examples for students to riff on. From the list of words "joggled", kids can order them by noun, verb, adjective, etc. Then they select words for their hot list of favorites for the poem they are creating.

It's best suited for students in grades 3-12. See the demo in the video below.

#3 Rhyming Dictionary

Find a rhyme in time

RhymeZone's Rhyming Dictionary helps kids in their struggle to find words that express their feelings and ideas. It goes well beyond helping kids to find rhyming words. Use it to find synonyms, antonyms, as well as words with similar sounds or consonants (alliteration). You can even see where Shakespeare has used your word in his works. RhymeZone also has dictionary definitions, homophones, and letter matching

Other resources on this site include the works of Shakespeare, Mother Goose poems, a poetry forum, and several vocabulary games - lots of goodies for young and old poetry lovers.

#4 Poetry 180

A Peom a Day for High School Students

Poetry 180 provides schools, classrooms, and homeschooled teens an opportunity to listen to poems by popular contemporary poets. Designed for pure enjoyment - there's no need to analyze or write about the poems. One a day is typically read as part of morning or afternoon announcements.

Each poem is accompanied by a brief bio of the author, background of the poem, and a link to more detailed information about the author's work.

Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate, 2001-2003, is the host of this series that resides on the Library of Congress website. He provides guidance on how to use the poems, and an example of how to read one that is particularly helpful.

#5 Writing with Writers: Poetry

Lesson unit resources for poetry writing and online publication

Spend some time with writers of children's poetry at Scholastic's Writing with Writers: Poetry. Three well-known poets discuss samples of their work, and give kids advice on their own poetry writing. You'll also find guidance for publishing your kids' poems in the lesson planning resources for teachers and homeschool parents.

Watch Jack Prelutsky, Children's Poet Laureate, as he waxes poetic with a selection of his works. Karla Kushin offers kids in grades 4-89 her poetry writing and revising tips. Jean Marzollo, the writer of the well-known I Spy riddles, offers guidance and tips to kids on creating their own "I Spy" riddles. And K-12 students have the opportunity to publish their poems to this site.

Try the interactive Poetry Idea Engine to create and print a limerick, haiku, cinquain or free verse.

#6 ShelSilverstein.com

It's so Shel !

Shel Silverstein's Official Site for Kids is all about the fun of Shel Silverstein. Every child I know has been captivated and amused by the off-kilter poetic sense of Silverstein and his equally oddball illustrations. His website is very much in the same vein. The audio on the site helps you to fully appreciate and play along with his poetic hijinks.

Time for a poem . . .

#7 Haiku Poem Interactive

Haiku Poem Interactive is a relatively new addition to the ReadWriteThink family of student interactives. It explains the 5-7-5 syllable pattern, the significance of an "Aha!" moment, and offers suggestions for getting inspired. Students brainstorm a list of eight words and their syllable counts, then use those words as a kicking off point for their poem. The interactive does not hold them to the strict 5-7-5 pattern.

Once a child completes her poem, she can change of the font style, background image, and position of the poem and the page to get the effect she wants. Poems can be printed or saved for later use.

As with their other materials, ReadWriteThink includes lessons plans that make use of the interactive.

#8 Poetry4Kids.com

Funny and popular poems

Poetry4Kids.com is home to the works of Ken Nesbitt, Children's Poet Laureate, and it is a poetry playground. Kids read and rate the poems on this website. You'll see funny ones, the newest ones and the most popular ones. There are lessons on writing funny poems, including clerihews and exaggeration poems. And there's a simple rhyming dictionary.

If you register (for free), you can enter poetry contests, participate in a poetry forum, and even keep a poetry journal.

Exploring Poetry with Curriculum Pathways
Exploring Poetry with Curriculum Pathways

#9 Curriculum Pathways Poetry Lessons

In these activities geared to students in grades 6-12, Curriculum Pathways Poetry Resources provides lessons to engage students in analyzing different types of poetry. Students learn poetry-reading strategies on themes in nature, sports, families, and the great poems of English literature.

Teachers can adjust the lessons to meet the needs of the students. Free registration is required for teachers and students. This is also an excellent resource for homeschoolers.

#10 Poetry Foundation

Videos of poetry and author interviews

Get some inspiration for a video creation from the beautiful selection on the Poetry Foundation website. In addition to the video collection, there are interviews with well-known poets, including the Children's Poet Laureate.

Among their other resources is a Poetry Tool, where you can browse through a selection by age group or category. Teachers and homeschooling parents will find lesson plan ideas in their Learning Lab resources.

Take your poetry on the go, with their Poetry apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Browse by category, or search by poet or a line of poetry. Or give your device a shake to discover a random new poem.

#11 Teen Ink Poetry

Teen get feedback and publish poetry

Teen Ink offers teenagers a forum and showplace for the poetic works they write. Teens submit their original works and their peers vote on those they like most. The most popular poems posted by teens are showcased on Teen Ink. There's a forum for teens to get feedback on their poetry and share their ideas. And Teen Ink offers similar opportunities for teens who write fiction and non-fiction stories.

#12 Poets.org

        The interactives and apps described above on ReadWriteThink (#1 on the list) are games that provide scaffolding for kids writing poetry. Poetry Splatter (#7 on the list) does much the same. My students have particularly enjoyed ReadWriteThink's haiku interactive.

        Actually, I write poems while writing in my journal. They just appear while I'm lost in the space of free thinking.

        I suspect that children find it easier to write poetry than adults because they (children) don't know they can't.

        I just learned about this lens. There is a lot of information here but I love your basic premise on inspiring kids to write poetry. I just did a lens on my shortend version of favorite poets. I write a few poems frm time to time. But they come from within me and inspired by a vast amount of knowledge I have accumulated from reading poetry of those who inspire me. SO that tehcnique may be good fit for some kids, ie, be inspired by those few you learn to admire. Focus on emotion and person rather than be driven by technique. Topic 02: Poetry reading loud is an art that we have lost in America for some reason. We need to inspire kids to be great poetry dramatists like those who exist in the Russian Culture and French Culture for example. So is poetry recitation is worthwhile topic with support from not only teachers but also community ? THis can be done easy enough once a decision is made, that yes, poetry reading out loud is a valueable skill, not only for poets but also for those who go into theater and drama, reading other people's poems, perhaps a fellow student, or from a poet one admires from history. Comments ?

I think he'd love it and be good at it. I voted for one site, Welcome to PS4K. Kid poems and stories can be submitted and voted on. I added your plexo to my recent LOTD lens, Reading Starts at Home. I hope more people vote and check out your sites.

        I haven't even touched the surface of the valuable information you've shared on this lens. My son and I will be back!

        Anything that gets kids writing, reading and being creative gets high marks from me. One of the most popular sections on my web sites is the "shape papers with lines" section. My daughter loved Shel Silverstein - me, I'm a spoken word groupie from Cambridge/Boston ... I love poetry, performance or written.

        No, I cannot say that I have, but have written hundreds of poems - usually, unintentionally. Once you get started, it is hard to stop. Some of my grandchildren will love this! Terrific job!

        Great lens - I love the giggle poetry from Meadowbrook (I actually applied for a job there out of collage, but alas no luck :) ) and thanks for submitting some lenses to Review Central - I'll certainly add a category for educational kids site reviews.

        My step-son needed help with a Haiku recently. His teacher had given the wrong formula in the homework instructions, but we found help online. Excellent resource... Squid Angel Blessed.

        Cool sites for children.

        Thanks for sharing


        The kids smiles spread

        And so dose the atmosphere

        They make the world spin

        little miss bread

        fell on her head

        she couldn't see anything after

        she went to see a nurse

        the nurse brought up a hearse

        and little miss bread was dead

        that was my poem! i hope u liked it!
