I have been writing poetry and novels for several years, and have participated in online and local writing groups as well. I hope this unit inspires your students' creativity!
*All artwork is in the public domain and is copyright-free.
*If you are a classroom teacher, see my Haiku Writing Set.
*I've created the sets so you can print and go, but a few of the pages from one set to the other (low la to low sol, for example) are the same. I have not included the duplicate pages in my page count.
