I have to admit, when I was first playing around with Haiku Deck, I found myself thinking, “I am not sure how I am going to make this useful in my classroom,”…even with the examples given. However, I knew that with some thought and patience, it would come to me. And it did, I have a student in my class with Dyslexia, he is in grade 3 and struggles with books at beginning grade 1 level. He tries his best to learn, and is actually very intelligent, the frustration he feels absolutely breaks my heart! I have been using the Dragon Dictation App and been having some success with it in his writing, but it is still important he learn basic words so that he can improve his reading ability. I chose to create a Haiku Deck for all of the basic words needed to go on in reading that he is missing. I searched the word, and chose an appropriate picture to go with the word (careful, many inappropriate pictures came up for some words). My hope is that he will learn these words in a way that makes sense to him and apply that learning to other reading that he does. I don’t know what the outcome will be, but I do know what the outcome would be if we didn’t try. Thanks George, you gave me one more tool for my special little guy!
