Inking Thoughts: February Haiku

Friendship Haiku
  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: February Friendship Haiku
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons
  • Reading and Writing Connection: If reading is writing… writing is reading… poetry is a “song” from your heart!
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  •  Guided Hook: “Today’s writing is a pre-Valentine’s day drafting opportunity. You will create a Haiku about friendship. This friendship is about a bear and a squirrel as they head home from a Valentine’s party. You decide their conversation, their thoughts, and how they are feeling. Remind them to name the characters once they have created a sketch to go with their Haiku.
  • Drafting responses: Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Finally: Discuss: Let each family member share their “Valentine’s Day Haiku“ creation. Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
