GuyKu Haiku Samples

Divisions 2 and 10 did an excellent job writing haiku poems this month. Here are a few samples:

When the world whispers
“Give up,” Hope will tell you to
Try it one more time.

Cherry Blossoms
Falling gracefully
Soaring like a butterfly
Beautiful blossoms.

Hearing the loud waves 
Relaxing on the warm sand
Just my friends and I.

Shhh…says the oak tree
It whispers to the dark sky
The stars wink goodnight.

The stars in the sky,
Shine so very bright at night,
They must be alive…

I am a Canuck
Canucks win the Stanley Cup
This is now our year.

Vancouver Canucks
Are going to the next round
Nashville be prepared.

A sweet ride going
Down the street, driving so fast
Tires start to pop.

A peeking sunrise
Is glowing on the waters
In front of my eyes.

Skipping rocks fly top
Of the icy cold water
Going forever.

A tired red sun sets
Every night and the moon takes
Its place in the sky.

Dragons fly away
To their rocky cave in the
Evergreen forest.

April Library Happenings

This month will be quite busy in the Library! Division 1 (gr.7) will be conducting research on famous French-Canadians.

Division 10 (gr.3/4) will be writing Haiku poems in honour of National Poetry Month; Ms. L. and Mr. S. will be collaborating on a project inspired by the book Guyku: a year of haiku for boys by Bob Raczka and Peter H. Reynolds. Of course, we have created “Galku” for our aspiring female haiku writers! Stay tuned for more details…

Division 14 (gr.2) will be learning how to research and take notes about a favourite animal. We’ll be using books and the laptops for conducting research.

Aboriginal Circle will be held in the Library on Monday, April 11th.

Thank you to students Emily, Joanna and Katherine, for decorating the Library for Easter. It looks fantastic!
