Poetry Sunday: Yardstick Haiku #SOL17

IMG_3688Poetry Sunday~  #yardstickhaiku

March 12, 2017


Kindergarten kids

Time for play

Everything’s new


First graders ready

For reading

And writing ideas


Second grade learning

New techniques

Characters and plot


Third grade curious

About world

Opinions abound


Fourth grade noticing

How things work

Showing what you know


Inspired by  Mary Lee Hahn in  A Year of Reading, #haikuforhealing

and my dear friend, Anna Martin, for always keeping Yardsticks on my mind.  


I am participating in the Slice of Life challenge to write and publish a post every day in March.

Slice of Life is hosted by Two Writing Teachers. I thank them for the community they provide. Read more slices here.

  1. We go back.. way back in so many ways. You are good for my soul and I am so happy you sliced this year. Maybe you sliced in the past and I just didn’t know it. I love that I know we are slicing together. I love hearing your voice and thoughts through your slices. So creative!!! Thank you.
