Teaching your children to create a Haiku is a great activity. They love to count the syllables and create a beautiful scene with words. The rules are simple...
1. A Haiku is three lines -first line is five syllables. -second line is seven syllables. -third line is five syllables.
2. The subject of a Haiku is nature.
3. The purpose of a Haiku is to paint a picture in your mind, NOT to tell a story.
