This product introduces haiku poems, the syllable structure used to write them, a section where students think about the number of syllables in words and try writing their own haiku poem, as well as a worksheet where students rewrite incorrect haikus, and a fun group activity to support and practice student knowledge of the haiku line and syllable pattern.
