A terrific idea is to have a child record their haiku and then illustrate it in a software program. I have done just that with several elementary classes and the results are wonderful. Each child is excited to see his/her illustration and hear their haiku. This is a way for parents to hear a recording of their child's voice. We have so many papers of what our children have done in school, but probably not many audio samples.
I love this one.I can only ever see angry faces in pansies!
The 'smiling faces' are nice but I always think pansies are frowning at me, somewhat like Rachel's idea!
Interesting points of view!I am not sure that teachers can teach children well enough what haiku is all about. Firstly, there is the translation of the form from Japanese to English and I'm not sure I quite get it.Haiku has such specific guides - traditional or new English forms.I am still wrestling with putting images on - but like to include my inspiration.challenge:Since two of you find pansies less friendly, can you write a haiku about that?! I shall try.Great to have kids read what they write. BTW. Excellent pedagogy.
