Because diamante poems follow a specific format that uses nouns on the first and last lines, adjectives on the second and fourth lines, and gerunds in the third and fifth lines, this tool has numerous word-study applications. The tool provides definitions of the different parts of speech students use in composing the poems, reinforcing the connection between word study and writing. It also includes prompts to write and revise poems, thus reinforcing elements of the writing process.
Users can send their finished poem to their device’s camera roll or email it as a .pdf file to friends and family.
Created with classroom use in mind, this tool allows users to create their own profile to store their work, making device sharing easier for students in classes which do not have 1-to-1 tablet availability.
This app mirrors our popular diamante poem web-based interactive, so users familiar with one can easily adapt to the other. In fact, the two are so similar that users can send their editable .rwt files to an email address and then open their acrostic poem right in the online tool!
As these figures change daily, you have the possibility to collect them. For this, we have created an album.
The album consists of 3 pages, each for 8 figures. You can place 2 figures on the open padlocks daily. Use the first page for the figures of the traditional notebook and the third page for the figures of the notebook with an image on the cover. Use the second page for both types of figures.
The more notebooks you have, the sooner you will fill the album. One notebook is also enough to fill two pages. For each page you fill, you will receive a bonus 3D figure.
To view again one of the figures you collected, just click on its icon in the album. To continue collecting figures, use the camera icon.
