A PicLit

The only way I knew how to share my piclit poem.  Through wordpress.

Piclit is a creative tool for using visuals and and a word bank to create a literary poem accompanied by literal imagery.

It’s a neat thing to do in your spare time, but it’s also a great tool for easing students into composing poetry. The visual inspiration is there. A word bank is there. Students don’t have to stress over creating a poem from scratch. They can rely on a set of words and combine them in any number of ways.

I think the tool speaks for itself. I tried it in my classroom once, but I will say that it may work best with middle schoolers. It’s a good digital tool to introduce students to poetry.
