Practice using a thesaurus by rewriting a simple song or poem. Check out Oh' Boy 4th Grade and Brannack's Bobcats take on The Itsy Bitsy Spider. Brannack's Bobcats demonstrate how to use VoiceThread in an elementary classroom (click slideshow link)! Students broadcasted their version, so parents could view all the kids' work and hear their voice. Voice Thread is a fantastic, free tool because parents are able leave a comment on students' work (text, video, or audio commentary).


  1. Both of the links in the first line go to the Oh' Boy 4th Grade blog. Is that right?
    I really like this idea and will use it with my 4th graders this year. I'm thinking of other poems I could use it with. Thanks!

  2. This is a great idea! My kids are feeling a bit negative towards writing and journaling at the moment maybe this will spark some interest!
