Spring Haikus

on

Some of my students wrote haikus this week about spring and they turned out awesome!  I wrote one as an example and all my students’ poems were better than mine.  Here are some of my favorites.

Fishing

You will need wax worms
Fishing Poles will be needed
Catch the biggest one

Grass

Grass can be itchy
Ladybugs live in the grass
Grass is always green

Thunderstorms

Dark clouds piling up
Lightening flashes in the sky
Should we go inside?

Aren’t they good?  I am so proud.  They really enjoyed writing these.  They didn’t seem to realize they were working on things like handwriting,  correct spacing and spelling!  Here is the template we used and little background information about haiku poetry.

Haiku Activity

I’m not sure if I should hang these on the spring bulletin board I made or if I should put them together and make a book.
