Write a Review


TechnoPoet is a great project to do during National Poetry month. Students create a poetry booklet editing and composing different types of poems. Students learn advance Word processing skills such as text wrap, picture styles, and object order. Individuality and creativity is shown as with all TechnoKids projects.
