Our Haiku Poems

I was very pleasantly surprised at the number of students who could do this effectively. We read the book Dogku, if you are not familiar with it, the plot is about a dog who joins a new family but the twist is that each page is written in haiku format.

We've done syllables since the beginning of the year, so that wasn't my worry in giving them this task. It was the adjustment from writing in sentences to creating kind of limited phrases. Here's what they came up with :

"They blend in a snowstorm" is the middle line.

Fun activities, fun adventures in the class room, I always love it!
