In Writer's Workshop, students learned how to write a haiku.  A haiku is a short poem which originated in Japan.  It is three lines long; the first line consists of 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables and the third line has 5 syllables.  Each student wrote a haiku about an animal without using the animal's name.  I recorded a short video of the students reciting their haikus.  For the most part the students were recorded in number order.

Can you guess what animal each haiku is describing?  Listen to find out...
