Word Mover: A Visually Creative Way To Write Poetry [iPad]

MOin 13-12-2012

Children are often interested more in sports and video games than they are in literature and poetry. Thus for a teacher, it is not an easy task to get children enthusiastic about poetry and realize how enjoyable it can be. What a teacher in this situation could really use is any form of assistance that will add a fun aspect to poetry reading and poetry composition. This fun aspect would surely get children interested in writing and reading poetry.


Here to help accomplish that is an iOS application called Word Mover.

Word Mover is a free to use smart device application for iPad devices. The app is sized at nearly 44 MB and is compatible with iPad devices running version 4.3 or later of iOS. The app basically helps children and teens to create poetry by adding a fun visual appeal to the words. The app lets children use words somewhere like the magnets placed on a refrigerator – words are of various font sizes and they can be dragged around into place.

Children can create poetry from their own words or have fun by exercising their creativity and using the word bank to compose poetry pieces. Famous works can also be accessed from the application; apart from reading these works, children can play around with the words to create new poetry from them.



Poetry in the application is kept private; things you want to share can be emailed to the addresses that you choose.

    Thanks for highlighting the Word Mover from ReadWriteThink.org! We are very excited about it as it was one of our first apps. We are working to make this into an online version as well as offer the app to be used on Android devices.

    We'd love to hear feedback from others! Thanks again - lisa
