There's a glitch that if you make word to big the text disappear

Love it!


This app is very easy to use. Using the texts that are available (like " I have a dream") students are making great poetry. I wish we could sync with Dropbox or something to create more themed options. I would love to upload words from our SS text or the novel we are reading. That would be an amazing update!!

Great Idea

This app is very useful for teachers. I've done found poetry lessons before and this takes it to another level. I like the 4 pieces that are come with the app and that you can add words and a word bank but it would be even better if you could upload your own pieces from a document.
