I thought this was a really neat website, Children’s Haiku Garden.
It shares poems and artwork by children and it seems like the kind of thing that would be really helpful in motivating your child to be creative.
I especially like the fact that the poetry is written by one child and the artwork done by another. It’s a great way to foster teamwork without competition.
This poem, in particular, caught my eye. The haiku and the accompanying artwork are both by 9 year old children from Japan.
the shining sea
seagulls turn round and round
a big catch!
