List poetry blog & videos: Collaborative online writing, remixing & visualizing

Poetry Unit, List Poems, Poetry Videos

This Fall, fifth graders at PS 124 created “List” or “Catalog” poetry while learning to blog, and currently one of the classes is producing video representations of poems generated through this project.

Two fifth grade classes read There was a Child Went Forth by Walt Whitman, learning about the poet and his image-rich style of writing, and responded to 4 themes within the poem during directed free-writing sessions.
