This week, we have been reading a story about a journey from Japan to California. Click on our post Resources for “Grandfather’s Journey” to learn more about the story and our learning activities around it.
Our writing assignment this week is to compose an original haiku poem. Haiku is a non-rhyming type of poetry from the Japanese culture. Haiku poets write about everyday things. Many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences.
This week, our students will write traditional haiku. We will then share our haiku in a class Haiku Exhibit and Competition. We will vote for our favorite haiku poem. Please stay tuned…
Here is Ms. Rankin’s very first Haiku:
