Haiku Poems

Today the students in 4KJ wrote haiku poems in our literacy block.

Haiku poems are a Japanese form of poetry, and they do not rhyme. They have three lines and each line has a specific number of syllables. The structure of a haiku poem is:

Line 1: Five syllables

Line 2: Seven syllables

Line 3: Five syllables


Here is a haiku poem Miss Jordan wrote about her parents’ labrador, Mocha.

Mocha is cheeky.

Always hungry and playful.

A beautiful dog.

    Q. What do you think about our haiku poems?
    A. I thought they were amazing!
    Q. Can you write a haiku poem in your comment?
    A. No! Jokes yes sure I would love too!

    Here is my haiku poems I made:


    Louis is the best.
    Louis is very funny!
    I just love 1D!

    Lorry (My lorikeet)

    Lorry is my bird.
    He is very colourful.
    I just love my bird!

    Teresa (my best friend)

    Teresa is fun.
    I call her when I’m upset.
    We are like sisters.

    I don’t really know if my last one is right because I am confused when i said “I call her when I’m sad.”
    I really don’t get the part, I’m.
