Synonyms and Haiku

In this PowerPoint lesson the children discover how to create interesting haiku using synonyms.

This fun and engaging lesson will have your class using a thesaurus to find synonyms; discover what a haiku is; explore how all the words we use contain syllables and then use this information to create their own haiku.

The resource includes:
A PowerPoint lesson that takes the children through the entire process.
Teachers’ Notes including a worksheet to help the children write their haiku

The resulting haiku poems the children create would make an excellent addition to a class word wall.

If you find this resource useful please tell your friends and a review would be amazing. Many thanks.
