So who the heck is Don Pedro anyway? Well, he might be: * a prince of Aragon in the Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare * an American actor * a former governor of Guatemala * a Filipino politician
Haiku is an ancient form of poetry invented in Japan. People focus on the syllable counts, but that's just the basics. Here's how to write a haiku poem.
Good explanation of Haikus for my older kids. In April, the whole front of my circulation desk becomes a poetry wall. I buy cheap decorative post-its from target and the kids are allowed to write a poem on them and stick it to the wall. At the end of the month we host a poetry night and students can read one of those poems!
