Birds in flight is a fascinating, exhilarating subject, ideal for the evocative mini-poem, the haiku. This sheet provides 3 haiku frames, three haiku starter-lines, information about haiku and how they work, inspirational commentary on the theme, and tips for preparing your children to compose them.
Birds may sweep and swoop, tip and tilt, glide and cruise through skies of all sorts, perhaps catching the sun on their wings. What do they look like, up there against that crystal blue, peachy sunset or leaden cloud? Are they like darts, bullets, a swarm of bees, dancing butterflies or some other image? Where are they heading, how long is their journey and how do they know the route? Young, fluffy chicks are fun to write about, too, hop-skip-flapping off on their first, bumpy flight.

Haiku Writing Guides
Haiku poetry frames and guidance for a range of topics. Trees, butterflies, oceans, birds and dragons feature in this bundle. The haiku's 3-line, 17-syllable format is more tricky to use than it looks, but it offers an engaging challenge that older children enjoy trying and sharing, with syllable-counting and a bit of adding up, as well as ideas and language to select. These frames, starter lines, prompts and warm-up recommendations will ensure constructive fun for all.
