I Love Spring For Itself: A Haiku For Every Season at Moos Elementary

The students and I had an extra long break due to the first vortex of 2015! In honor of how frozen we were that week, when we finally got back together we read a haiku for each season by the great and very funny poet, Issa. The students then wrote their own poems for each season.

We embraced the winter cold but we also fantasized about hopeful spring, and lazy summer, and crisp fall. If you’ve got the winter blues, I think we’ve got the fix below. Enjoy!

The snow begins to melt
The flowers are blooming
