Write with me during Poetry Month

For Poetry Month, I invite students of all ages to send me an EduHaiku poem…

Q. What is EduHaiku?

A. A 3 line poem about something you learned at school today.

Q. How do you write an EduHaiku?

A. Try this.

  1. Select a topic from one of your school subjects.
  2. Brainstorm a list of words about your topic.
  3. Count the syllables in each word.
  4. Use the words to share a short thought with the haiku format.

Q. What is the haiku format?

A. Haiku has 3 lines.

  1. The first line has 5 syllables.
  2. The second line has 7 syllables.
  3. The third and final line has 5 syllables.

Share your poems with me on the EduHaiku blog or the Twitter. (Send it as a message to @EduHaiku or use the #eduhaiku hashtag so I’ll see it.)

Teachers, I’d love to hear from you and your entire class!
