Haiku Poems Created with Animoto by 5th Graders

The fifth graders will be writing Haiku poems about their school experiences for their graduation performance. As a way to scaffold this assignment, I worked with them to create Haiku poems. I reviewed the structure of a Haiku and then went over the assignment. The students had to create a Haiku with one of these themes: summer, reading, school, library, or books. The students used the template from ReadWriteThink. After creating a Haiku, the students could choose from one of four technology tools to present their poems. Examples of the brainstorm sheets can be found at the bottom of the post.  

I created examples for each form. They can be found on the assignment page.

Here are the Haiku Poems expressed with Animoto.
