Mobile Apps from ReadWriteThink.org

There’s an app for that! Now you can engage your students in literacy learning using tablet devices with apps from ReadWriteThink.org. Students can download a mobile app and use it anywhere, anytime. No Internet connection is required once the apps are downloaded. Here are some of the apps available from ReadWriteThink:

 

Word Mover (Grades 3 – 12)

Word Mover allows children and teens to create “found poetry” by choosing from word banks and existing famous works; additionally, users can add new words to create a piece of poetry by moving/manipulating the text. See additional ways to use the app with this video.

 

Trading Cards (Grades 3 – 8)

Invigorate students' writing with an interactive tool that allows them to demonstrate their comprehension using a mobile app. Watch the video to learn more about this app.

 


Acrostic Poems (Grades K – 12)
Learn about and write acrostic poems, a poetry form that uses the letters in a word to begin each line of the poem. All lines of the poem relate to or describe the main topic word.

 

Alphabet Organizer (Grades K – 5)

The Alphabet Organizer lets users create a calendar-style ABC chart or letter pages for an alphabet book.

 

Diamante Poems (Grades K – 12)

In this app, users can learn about and write diamante poems, which are diamond-shaped poems that use nouns, adjectives, and gerunds to describe either one central topic or two opposing topics (for example, night/day or winter/spring). Examples of both kinds of diamante poems can be viewed online or printed out.

 

Venn Diagram (Grades K – 12)

The Venn Diagram app allows users to compare and contrast information in a visually appealing way.

 


Theme Poems (Grades K – 5)
Users learn about and write theme poems, a poem written within the shape of the subject of the poem.

 


Timeline (Grades K – 5)
Timeline allows students to create a graphical representation of an event or process by displaying items sequentially along a line, organized by time of day, date, or event and labeled with short or long descriptive text. Addition of an image makes a timeline more visually appealing.
