Haiku Poems with our Alliteration Identities

Last week we have been learning about haiku poems.

Traditional haiku are always the same, including the following features:

  1. There are only three lines, totalling 17 syllables.
  2. The first line is syllabels.
  3. The second line is syllables.
  4. The third line is syllables like the first.
  5. A haiku does not have to rhyme, in fact usually it does not rhyme at all.
Some haiku can include the repetition of words or sounds.  We made the connection that this is similar to our alliteration learning earlier in the term.

We also made the connection that learning about syllables is similar to the learning we have doing around building our knowledge about word attack.  We also wanted to write about our super hero or villains again.


  1. Great effort! Well done 👍

  2. I tried a haiku - it's really hard! I like to write lots, so Haiku makes you think about how to summarise. I'm very impressed with your efforts! Ka pai!

  3. Well done guys, these are awesome!!
