This is where we would love to share poems with others around the world. Poems can be about your culture, or your country or surroundings. They can be favourite poems by famous poets, or poetry written by your class. Please create a Voicethread of the poems, and share it with others on your page on the blog. See this example: http://voicethread.com/share/119840 Then we can all comment on each others poems and build up a rich tapestry!
Please find attached two documents on how to start the poetry collaboration project. Please could you start this off as soon as you manage to get out of the snow and back to school! If possible, I would like all schools signed up to both websites by the end of the week, as we would like (snow permitting!) this project to be finished by February half term. Please could you look at the list of participants, and send me any amendments, and changes of address. Your email address would be helpful so that I can put it on my distribution list, please, and send you the documents I need to for your to start the project off. I have included all the schools who have shown interest, please let me know if you are no longer participating in the project. I will also let you know if we have any other schools come on board - I am still hoping for some international schools, who have not yet come back to me. Please let me know if there are any questions - Caroline
Thank you for your message. I've explored voicethread.com, and signed up for a free account. Not sure if I can publish anything on the free account, but £7 or so isn't too much to pay. Having got the go-ahead from my Head of Department, but sure it won't be a problem. Have a small selection of students (5-7 or so) who would be keen and literate, so determined to make it all go ahead.
Can't seem to find the documents you have attacked in my email or my inbox on this site. My apologies if I'm missing something obvious :-)
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, what are you expecting as an outcome? I'm imagining that as a minimum, 5-7 pupils share a poem(s), via googledocs or voicethread.com. Ideally we can video conference, but failing that we offer written commentary via another forum.
Thanks for your messeage Caroline, hope you're enjoying the snow this weekend! We have many snow-families, plus it's all beginning to melt.
