Product Description
Poetry and Art come together in this writing activity that’s perfect for any season and/or any holiday!

In this art-integrated writing lesson, students write and illustrate Haiku poetry depicting seasonal images. This is an integrated activity in which the two disciplines -- art and writing -- complement and support each other.

The overall lesson is divided into five distinct sessions which can actually be completed in one day with time left over, or they can be scheduled over a series of days, with one or more sessions being completed each day. Because it relies on student writing level and creativity, the lesson can be easily differentiated for several grade levels.

In this lesson, students will:
- use observation skills and prior knowledge to create a word list
- listen to read-aloud samples of Haiku poems
- use syllabication and grammar skills
- use descriptive words to create visual images
- collaborate on a group-written Haiku
- independently write a seasonal Haiku
- use handwriting skills to create a finished copy
- mount and illustrate their Haiku
- use collage technique to create an illustration
- use a rubric for self-assessment
- discuss and analyze their own and others' work
- use a rubric for self-assessment

Included with this lesson:
- information about Haiku
- a list of concepts and skills addressed
- a list of materials needed
- suggested targeted vocabulary
- suggested books for read-aloud
- step-by-step directions for all lesson components
- various tips for ensuring student success
- a list of suggestions for extending the lesson
- two student self-assessment rubrics, one for younger and one for older students
- photographs of student art work and lesson charts for reference

Along with writing and basic art supplies, a book of Haiku poems will be needed for reading aloud. Suggested titles are included with the lesson.

I am a retired elementary classroom teacher, a former art teacher, an artist and a writer. I have worked with all elementary grades, and with special groups including ELL, GATE, and At-Risk students. Creating Art With Kids and Share2Learn lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.
