A decade ago I began celebrating Haiku Day on May 7th with my students because it is 5-7. Haikus are traditional Japanese poetry that follows a 5-7-5 syllable pattern and are usually about nature.
Luckily the other educators at my school embraced my enthusiasm and encouraged the composition of haikus in their classrooms as well.
Today I am sharing this celebration with you.
Take time to pen a haiku for yourself and document the beauty of something in your life.
