Primary Poetry: Haiku

Primary Poetry: Haiku

This week we have been learning how to write a Haiku. A Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry (made slightly famous by the President of the European Union, Herman Van Rompuy- but don’t let that put you off!), which always has 17 syllables over 3 lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second 7 syllables, and the last line again has 5. A Haiku is usually a poem about nature. As we have been learning about syllables, the Haiku was an interesting way to apply that knowledge.

The book we are using for grammar/English studies is Language Lessons for the Elementary Child. This helped guide The Girl through the lesson, pointing her gently in the right direction.

Haiku Review:

    A Haiku has 17 sylables.
    A three lined poem
    First line has 5 syllables, second 7, third 5.
    It is a poem about nature.
