This product is a 5 page PDF file ready to print and use. The first two pages give the definition and examples of Haiku poetry. There are two exercises for the students to complete.
Then, there is a page for students to write three Winter, Holiday, Christmas, or family themed Haiku poems. There is a grading rubric included as well as student examples.
I have the students print them in the computer lab, color their pictures, then give them as a gift to their families. We all know that middle school students do not make homemade gifts as much, but parents LOVE to receive them. This has been a great activity to complete around the holidays for many years.
