Haiku Deck for Digilit Sunday


                Margaret Simon, of Reflections on The Teche, is trying to encourage people to link up for "Digilit Sunday" to share some things they're doing, or learning how to do, with technology. Thanks, Margaret!  And thanks to Kevin Hodgson for introducing me to my first Haiku Deck!
                Today, I'm sharing a poem I wrote during Laura Shovan's birthday month Pantone color poetry challenge. You can find out about it here. There are several who have shared poems using HaikuDeck, so I decided to try it out. I found it very easy, and while I could have used more pictures, I enjoyed the process. This poem was silly, and the color prompt was "silver bullet". You'll see the "why" of the poem when you read.

  1. I remember this poem. The only issue I have is it becomes an ear bug. I'll sing "Home on the range" all day now. I love the idea for students of taking a song and writing new words. It's a way to make them brave. This haiku deck is great. I wish our district didn't block the images.

    1. Do they block all images, Margaret. These are from Photo Pin, but I could easily have brought them from Wikimedia Commons. Sorry about the blocking. I'm enjoying seeing what others are doing with tech!

  4. I learned about Haiku Deck from Kevin also. :) I haven't used it with my kids, but I'd like to try. Love your poem and the images that go along with it.

    1. Thanks Julie.I think your students should be able to use it fairly easily. There are just a couple of choices to make, plus uploading pictures.

    2. Hurray for you, trying something new! And it turned out really well! I've been amazed this month, that Kevin not only manages to write a terrific poem, but also creates some kind of digital production, using a different app, pretty much every day! I can't even get a decent poem written most days!

    3. I know, I'm rather stretched, too. This, as you see I've said earlier, was pretty easy-took time to find the right pics, but then everything else was good. Have a good week, Carol!

  5. Fun! Good for you for trying all these fun tools. Haiku Deck isn't supported by IE, so I'll have to pass for now. Liked the way you worked around the silver bullet topic!
