Using technology with young learners of English: Task 5- Creating a poem

Please read the introductory post about the project.

For the task, students created a “Who I am” poem for a character from their favourite story, tale or a book (for example, Cinderella, Robin Hood, or the Wolf in the Little Red Riding hood!). They used the following  prompts to write their poems.

I am …………………… (write character’s name)

I am ……………(1)., ………………(2), and ……………(3) (write three adjectives to describe your character)

I am wearing…………….. (write what the character is wearing)

I love…………………………… (write what you character loves doing/eating/saying, etc.)

I fear ……………………… (1) and ……………… (2)… (write what you character fears)

I can …………………(1) and (2) ………………. (Write what the character can do)

When their poem was ready, they searched for the picture of their character on the web and by using the Blabberize website they made their character tell the poem. Blabberize is a free website which lets you upload a photo/picture and animate its mouth to make it talk. You can record your voice up to 30 seconds. The final product can be embedded to a blog/web page. Here are some of the poems created by the students:
