Vocabulary, Spelling and Haiku

In this PowerPoint lesson the children discover how to create interesting haiku using the definitions of words from their word list or spelling list.

This fun and engaging lesson will have your class using a dictionary to find definitions of selected words; 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.
