April is poetry month. Haiku Deck has published a list of twelve ideas for using Haiku Deck in poetry lessons. While I wasn’t crazy about every idea on the list (that’s more a reflection of my style than it is of list) there are two ideas that jumped out at me. Both ideas utilize Haiku Deck’s integrated image search to help students find images to match the main ideas of their poems.
First grade students in Meghan Zigmond’s classroom used Haiku Deck to create poems about animals.
Fourth grade students in a classroom with one shared iPad collaborated to create poems about color. Their teacher, Daisy Marino, shares information about the process here.
