Welcome back, everyone! I’d love to hear how your summer was – so let’s try it in the form of a haiku. I’ve read up on haiku a little, and the “rules” for them are not set in stone – but typically one is set with 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and then 5 syllables in 3 lines, along with a reference to the season. Here are some from me:
Teachers get the time to be learners in the summer – I had a great opportunity to go to Calgary, Alberta to learn in-depth about SMART Boards:
Learning is so sweet
Water the brain with knowledge
It is also a time for teaching – I taught two workshops with Mrs. Calandra on Internet Safety, and one on SMART Boards:
Time to surf and play
Keep those predators away
Use your brain always
But the best part of summer was with my family – my kids are 3 and 1 – time with them is awesome:
Warm sunny hazy
Children laughing on the swing
Lazy summer days
So, I’d like to hear from you! How was your summer – leave a summer haiku here in the comments.
