Day 1:
Students will begin by reviewing syllable counting through worksheets and several games. (the games would be great center review games throughout the entire unit)
Day 2:
They will move into understanding where Haikus originated from and practice visualizing poems. Nonfiction fact sheet - identifying the country of Japan - has headings and information (great nonfiction skill tie in).
Day 3 - 4:
Through gradual release, students work with partners followed by independent work. They will look at original photographs taken in Japan (used with permission), brainstorm word lists, and create Haikus. These days work on the traditional topics of nature found in Haiku poetry.
Day 5 - 6:
Students will apply the idea of a Haiku to modern day topics of their choosing. Students will engage in sharing published Haikus and participate in a Museum Walk while leaving positive comments for their peers' work. (ties in social skills and develops community while celebrating finished writing pieces)

Included in this unit are several assessment pieces, including: 2 quizzes (requiring lower and higher order thinking), peer and teacher checklists and a teacher grading rubric. The assessments are paced throughout the unit to ensure students are gaining knowledge as they move through lessons.
