Let's write a Haiku Poem using nature as our subject. Today is such a pretty day, wouldn't it be nice to go on a walk? While you are walking, pay attention to what you see and hear. If you want, you can even take some paper and a pencil/pen to write things down. Then, with the sights and sounds you find, you can write a fun Haiku Poem.
Remember, a Haiku is a simple poem with three lines. You don't even have to make this poem rhyme. Here are the details...
Line 1: 5 syllables
Line 2: 7 syllables
Line 3: 5 syllables
Here are some ideas of things to pay attention to or questions to ask yourself while you are walking.
What are some things you see?
What are some things you feel?
What are some things you hear?
Here is an example written by me!
Raindrops are falling
Small droplets falling softly
Smells clean like Springtime
If you want you can even illustrate your poem. Have fun and be creative! You can share it with me or with your family and friends.
We have had a great start to our school year! There have been a few changes in our Library. First, we want to welcome Mrs. Wilkins! Mrs. Wilkins is a ROCK STAR and is doing many amazing things in the Library.
We also completed a HUGE project at the first of the year! We organized our Fiction Section into Genres. We now have our Fiction Books organized into the following genres: Adventure, Animals, Classics, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Humor, Mystery, Realistic Fiction, Scary, Science Fiction, Sports, and Misc. Fiction. The students are finding books they never knew were here and it seems to help many of the kiddos find books easier than before. It is very exciting!
Finally, we had our first Book Fair of the year last week. We were able to buy lots and lots of books and will be adding them to the Library as soon as we can. Take a look at what we were able to buy! So many great books that will be checked out soon!
