RES Haikus
Written by 2nd graders

Illustrated by Kindergarteners & Multiage class
Inspired by Lion of the Sky: Haiku for All Seasons by Laura Purdie Salas, a Red Clover Book.

The kind of haikus that 2nd graders wrote are called riddle-kus. They describe a mystery object. Our artistic Kindergarteners add some illustrations to help visualize what the poem might be about. Can you guess the topic of these poems? Answers are provided at the end.
