My students and I are 23 days into our poem-a-day challenge. While not all have stayed caught up…many have. It’s such fun to watch their knowledge and skills with poetry and writing grow as they engage with written language and ideas every day.
Yesterday I invited students to create some Haiku focused on gratitude–something I had experienced through #haikuforhealing a while back. This seemed like a good time for some healing Haiku.
It was such fun to see what my student came up with. They posted their Haiku along with a photo on our class padlet. Here is a small collection of just the poetry–and notice how many students focused on family members as the subject of their poems.
And my own:
Neighborhood Naturewind brushing my face
dappled light bouncing off trees
nature brings me peace
