We also use iPads in our district and I love the engaging idea of using the free photo booth to create poetry that the kids will be interested in! It is so important for students to take ownership of their creations and this allows them to become invested in their learning and excited about poetry; something my students usually don’t like very much. Teaching reading and writing includes exposing students to a variety of types of writing, like poetry, and the best way for them to learn is to write their own. Often, students have difficulty in coming up with ideas (fun ideas!) for writing their own poems and this allows them to really get excited and involved in the creation of their own unique poem. There are so many great benefits of iPad features, and this one would be so simple to use and very rewarding. Thanks for sharing!
