Celebration of spring often gravitates toward creating the ultimate nature poem, the haiku. The ReadWriteThink website jointly sponsored by ILA/NCTE has a haiku poem interactive that helps students generate a haiku, and even provides some lovely Japanese-style pen and ink drawings as backdrops. The haiku interactive is also an app that you should have in the "writing" section of your teacher iPad. If you try it out with your students, let me know so I can add some onto the blog! By the way, if you're wondering how I embedded this PDF file onto my blog, check out the blog post Embedding PDFs or other documents into Blogger or the video Using Google Drive to embed documents.
