Blossom-shaped Post-it® Super Sticky Notes
Grade Level: 6 to 8 (Middle school)
Estimated Time: 10-20min
Use Blossom-Shaped Post-it® Notes to introduce the written art of haiku
Step 1: Create a “cherry blossom tree branch” on a classroom wall using brown paper, scissors and wall-safe tape.
Step 2: Give each student a Blossom-shaped Post-it® Super Sticky Note on which to compose a springtime-themed haiku. The haiku is a Japanese poetry form that consists of 17 total syllables divided into five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the last line.
Step 3: As students complete their poems, invite them to add their blossom to the classroom branch.
Step 4: When the branch is covered in blossoms, host a reading to share the beautiful poetry the class created.
