April is National Poetry Month. Poetry can be difficult for children to create. It’s tough to wrap your brain around a form of literature that emphasizes expression and a distinct feeling of rhythm. (What?!) That’s why haiku is a lovely way to ease children into poetry. It’s simple–and it’s fun! See my morning haiku above. I still don’t have any doughnuts, but I certainly enjoyed creating a haiku about my lack of fried pastries.
But don’t stop there! See all of our excellent poetry resources to help you out.
Happy National Poetry Month!
