Poetry Lesson ???

I wish I could tell you that I was doing a knock your socks off, gotta try for yourself, fabulous unit study on poetry and today’s style was the haiku

I wish I could tell you that because my kids are half Japanese/American, in an effort to bring cultural awareness to the forefront of their minds, I did a unit study on Japanese poetry.

But I can’t. All I can say is that my silly sock haiku inspired them to write one of their own. But I guess that is how we learn the best, by example. Better to be inspired than made to do it. Right?!?

So without further ado -Presenting the Melange Gang’s Haiku Poetry… typed by themselves

Master 3-D’s Haiku

My eyes can’t see well
I wear glasses they help me see
I can see better

Ramona likes pies
Pumpkin is her favorite
she eats them often

Daddy’O reads books
I like the book he’s reading
It’s Prince Caspian

I have Lego sets
I have Lego Star Wars sets
They are really cool

Master chef’s Haiku

Funny little men
Create them how you want them
