Focus: today we are continuing to learn about poetry, but today we get to write some! One of the easiest forms of poetry to write is Haiku because it doesnt need to rhyme and it has very strict rules. We are going to learn these rules and write our own. Engage: Teacher Over the last few lessons you have been looking at particular poetic techniques. Haiku and Cinquain are types of poetry. They sometimes use the techniques you have been learning about. Opening Activity Haiku or Cinquain? Quiz 5 min max! Access: Quiz, on board brainstorm. What we already know about Haiku and Cinquain. Can you guess which samples and features are which poetic form? Content Time Discovery & Exploration Consolidate: ask ID students something new they learnt about how they can use poetry to express the way they feel and see the world. Reflect: has what we have learnt today changed what you think of poetry? Challenge/Extend: make your poems into a poster with one or more illustrations describing or depicting what the poems are about. Students can make a single posters for Haiku or they can also write a Cinquain next lesson on the same topic and combine them. (Explain next lesson is Cinquains etc..

Explain: A haiku is always written in 3 lines. Each line has a set number of syllables. The first line - 5 syllables. The second 7 syllables The third line - 5 syllables. A Haiku is inspired by observation of the world! Simply think about something you like, write a free description of it and then make that description fit the rules! Haiku are commonly accompanied by an illustration Briefly explain parts of speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives to consolidate (use MadLibs explanations) Explain verb evaluation as important HSC - Make a judgement based on criteria; determine the value of explain that they need to evaluate group word choices Students are split into groups. They are going to brainstorm words about the season of winter. Group 1 is nouns. Group 2 is adjectives (words that describe the season.) Group 3 writes verbs (action words of the season.) Students will work independently to write their own haiku, using words from the charts to help them generate ideas. Make sure that students understand that the word lists are for reference and ideas; encourage them to use their own words if they think of something that is not on the charts. Students have opportunity to share their Haiku if it is finished, peers offer feedback. Fast students can start, or homework is to write their Haiku on a new piece of paper supplied? And accompany it with an illustration

Engage: Teacher Opening Activity Do you like this Cinquain? - display samples for opinions and quiz kids on rules of Cinquain Access: Quiz, on board brainstorm. What we already know about Cinquain. (Explain it is ok to get them wrong, we are going to learn more about the form later) Content Time Discovery & Exploration Consolidate: ask ID students something new they learnt about how they can use poetry to express the way they feel and see the world. Reflect: has what we have learnt today changed what you think of poetry? Challenge/Extend: make your poems into a poster with one or more illustrations describing or depicting what the poems are about. Same as the posters for your Haiku, make one for your Cinquain or, if it is about the same subject matter you can combine them.

Rules of Cinquain and how to write Cinquain

5 min

Class writes a traditional Cinquain as a 10 min group activity

Class writes a word 10 min Cinquain as a group activity

Independent work

20 min

Explain: There are two types of Cinquain - the type that Adelaide invented, inspired by Haiku. Like Haiku, the rules are based on the number of syllables in each line. A modern adaptation of this is word cinquain, where the number of words allowed in each line is controlled. Cinquain is, like Haiku, inspired by observation! Normal descriptions can easily be made into cinquain Students use the word sheets from the previous lesson to think about how they can use these same words in a trad Cinquain. Rules: line 1 - 2 syllables, line 2 - 4 syllables, line 3 - 6 syllables, line 4 - 8 syllables, line 5 - 2 syllables line 1 - one word (noun) a title or name of the subject line 2 - two words (adjectives) describing the title line 3 - three words (verbs) describing an action related to the title line 4 - four words describing a feeling about the title, a complete sentence line 5 - one word referring back to the title of the poem Students will work independently to write their own cinquain, using words from the charts to help them generate ideas. Make sure that students understand that the word lists are for reference and ideas; encourage them to use their own words if they think of something that is not on the charts.
