Write Haiku Poems

Students have been reading many types of poems and learning about figurative language. We are writing similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, idioms, and personification. Each student wrote a Haiku, which is a Japanese poem that follows a syllable pattern. A Haiku poem has three lines with five syllables on line one, seven syllables on line two and five syllables on line three.  Check out some of these great Haiku poems!

Dogs jump so high in the air

Dogs need water, now!
