Read, Recite, and Write Haiku (Poet's Workshop)
Haiku is a form of short poem that features a set number of syllables. This engaging book describes how to create haiku focusing on setting, seasonal words, and making every word count. As they write their own haiku, readers will learn what else matters besides counting syllables.
Simultaneously as concise and in-depth as poems themselves, this Read, Recite and Write series deftly instructs young writers in brainstorming, writing, revising and even orally presenting their own original poems. Writing poetry is an effective way to start children in composing since small amounts of writing can be earnestly focused on. Each photograph-and-cartoon-illustrated book provides examples of a particular poetry style. By following each of the 8 chapters of step-by-step guidance, students learn to understand the poetry type, work through the writing process, and discover how to present their own poem. Poetry Pointers and Literature Links emphasize key terms in bold. These bite-sized texts cut out the unnecessary and direct even unwilling writers. Included are additional links as well as a book list, glossary, and index. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
