St. Patrick's Day Haiku
Identifying poetry in literature is an important third grade skill to master. One of the oldest forms of poetry is the haiku (pronounced HI-COO). Encourage your little writer to flex his poetry muscles and come up with a haiku of his own! His 17-syllable poem will focus on Saint Patrick's Day, the annual feast day celebrating the most widely recognized patron saint of Ireland.
