HAIKU POEM

HOW TO:

Traditional Japanese poem (haiku) consists of three verses that contain patterns of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Let your students choose a color, brainstorm together, and write as many words associated with the color as possible.

Then each student should choose 3 words and use them in short sentences.

The last step is to re-write the sentences into a haiku poem.
