2nd Grade Haiku

Haiku

Mrs. Bestwick's 2nd Grade class wrote various types of poems as part of their poetry unit. The poems were submitted to the Young American Poetry Digest for the National Schools Project.
Each January, schools across the nation are invited to participate in the project. The poems submitted by schools are reviewed by teachers/educators who select the poems based on the following criteria:
• Overall quality of the poem based on student’s age and grade level
• Creativity
• Age-appropriate language
• Sensory/figurative images
• Structure
• Poetic techniques
Many of the students’ poems were selected to be published.
Listen to the students read their Haiku poems using the links below.
