Illustrated Haikus: The beauty of words and illustration, John's Literacy Group

Today some of us in John's literacy group wrote our own haiku (a traditional Japanese poem with three lines- one 5 syllable, next 7 Syllable and last 5 syllables). Then we created exquisite illustrations to put alongside these- integrating what we have learned about the beauty of form in poetry and the skills we have learned in visual art. Beautiful work all round!


  1. I really like the picture of the soccer it looks like you tried hard to draw it

  2. Hello,
    I'm from Grey Main School
    Those poems are interesting. I've never heard of those kind of poems at all.
    Was it hard or easy?
    Because it looks simple but it also looks like it takes a lot of thinking
