Haikus in Motion

Haikus are one of the oldest forms of poetry. Originating in Japan, poets would describe a moment in nature to represent a lesson for humanity. The 3rd grade poets from Ms. Zepeda’s class wrote their own Haikus with a ‘twist’. Each poet had to assign a movement to their poem. We could not include their movement here but we do have their Haikus! Enjoy!



By Angelou

Trees are beautiful

I always see the trees everywhere

I love trees so much



By Kariana

I love all flowers

Big sunflowers are the best

So many flowers


The Sun

By Camor

The sun gives us light

You can see it far away

Do you like the Sun?
