Tod Learns to copy stuff fun, interesting and inspiring… I had a wee go:-)
The scarlet macaws want their red back, not puce or pink but rich rubescence. They squawk and screech and growl for the people to give it back.
Just head this on the radio and looked it up.
They don’t want to be eaten.
They don’t want to be sacrificed.
They don’t want to be shot for their celestial light
and lose their teeth and eyes.
#tdc3186 #ds106 my Milestone poem is For the Children by Gary Snyder
learn the flowers
Listened to @KateClanchy1‘s Poetry activities for schools: The Table by Edip Cansever ripped from YouTube. Which is great. Kate Clanchy uses poem ‘The Table’ to inspire pupils to create their own poems. Loved the poem and read to my class this morning.
I have been working for years. on a four-line poem. about the life of a leaf; I think it might come out right this winter

I love the random so love this idea.You mentions a couple of my toys/tools along side some others.
The Random Flickr blendr was originally thought of as a sort of contemplation toy, so I avoided making it easy to grab images. I guess I could make that easier now there seems to be a purpose. I think FlickrCC Stampr used to have a url parameter to kick off a search I’ll look at adding that back in at times.
Side note, I remember Ben Rimes Poetry for People blog. Now gone but discussed here: Come Write Poetry With Me This April! – The Tech Savvy Educator
Update, 1-April-19 : I’ve made a couple of changes that might be useful:
http://johnjohnston.info/fcc/?s=poem adding ?s=searchword will preload the flickr search
On Random Flickr Blendr I’ve added a pause button and move the links for better screenshotting. I changed the links to flickr shortlinks so they can be read from an image (Not very accessible!)
Thanks for the link to Reading a Poem: 20 Strategies. A good one.
via @katexic newsletter! I am sure we have made book spine poems in DS106 and I’ve made them with my class, but I do like a bit of serendipitous automation.
