It's National Poetry Month! Time to get out a pen or pencil and begin exercising the creative side of your brain with poetry writing. What better place to start than trying out a haiku! This document from the fabulous site, Writing Fix, gives just a brief explanation of the basic rules for writing Haikus. With a few examples of the three line 5-7-5 philosophy, you'll be writing like a pro in minutes. You can also find examples from the internet as well as some student samples. Elsewhere on the Writing Fix site are additional lessons for writing and using Haikus to make riddles, comparing and contrasting, and for summarizing content material.
