Sweet Poems Too!


In our Writing Focus Lessons we have been discussing poetry. We have broken down the various categories, concepts, and elements of poetry as well as reading some. The kiddos knew quite a bit about poetry but haven’t had the chance to study or write any. Poetry is often a topic that either gets thrown into the whole mix of literacy times or its withdrawn from curriculum as the school year winds down. 

So the kids seemed pretty intrigued when I introduced this lesson. Currently only a few students have been inspired to write their own poems and I’m excited to see what they have in store for me. In the meantime, here’s a fun and helpful haiku to remind you about haikus:

Haiku three lines here, 

Seven syllable tercet

Five syllables shoe
