Some poetry advice, examples, and tips aimed at primary school teachers to be used as a resource.


A Haiku poem is a Japanese type of poetry. It has only three lines. The first line must only have five syllables.
 The second line must contain seven syllables. And finally, the third line must only contain five syllables.

First line:  5 syllables
Second Line: 7 syllables
Third Line: 5 syllables

A syllable contains the beat of a word. One, has one syllable while seven has two syllables.

Normally a Haiku is about nature or one of the seasons. It doesn’t have to rhyme.

For example –

A Hot Summer 

Oh my, it was hot
Almost boiling me in steam
Autumn, I prefer.
