The Year comes Round: Haiku through the Seasons by Sid Farrar

Recommended Grades: K-5

Simply written, this book of haiku takes readers through the seasons from January to December. 

Lesson Idea:  


Poetry: Read aloud The Year Comes Round: Haiku through the Seasons and use it as a model text for writing poetry, specifically haiku.  Use the organization as a model for students.  Choose a topic and after a study of haiku, have students write their own haiku related to the topic for a class anthology book.
