Wixie Ideas for Poetry

Use these examples of projects created by students and tweets from classroom teachers to inspire poetry writing in your classroom.

Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.

These multimedia poems were created by students using Wixie.

5 Senses Poems

Students write a 5 senses poem about a topic they are studying as a creative performance task.


Traditional haiku contain a kigo, or season word, to indicate in which season the Haiku is set. In this project students used Wixie write, illustrate, and publish a haiku with kigo indicating spring.

Create Concrete Poems

Concrete poems are poems where the words are arranged in a shape that reflects the topic of the poem. Write your poem in small phrases or stanzas and use the rotate handle above a text box in Wixie to adjust the direction.

Blackout Poetry

To write a blackout poem, students cover up words on a page of literature or informational text until the leftover words form a poem. Wixie has templates containing a page of text from literature like Tom Sawyer, Shakespeare, and Lewis Carroll to build and illustrate their poems.

Illustrated Poetry

Students create visual poetry by combining images that portray the meaning of text.

Bio Poems

Bio poems are a great way to introduce students technology. They know the content, love talking about themselves, and can focus on writing before adding images and narration.

Building Vocabulary

Reading and writing poetry helps students build skills with vocabulary, word choice and figurative language.

Collaborative Poetry

Shape Poems


Publishing Poems


Visualizing Poetry

Students are using Wixie to bring their words, their voice, and their art to the curriculum.
