The Haiku Foundation Haiku Registry

THF Celebration Fortnight 2017 – Day 7 post, by Jim Kacian, highlights the Haiku Registry, as “THF Fact of the Day.”  Billie Wilson is the manager for THF Haiku Registry.


This lesson plan from The Haiku Foundation Education Resources features a haiku by Peggy Willis Lyles, from her Poet Profile page at The Haiku Registry:

Montage: The Book – Created and Edited by Allan Burns

This weekend I am rereading MontageThe Book (2010, 2012, The Haiku Foundation), Created and Edited by Allan Burns.

The Artwork is by Ron Moss, and the Foreword is by Peggy Willis Lyles.  The Book Design is by Red Moon Press (Winchester, VA).

This is a beautiful and unique book about haiku, with many poems and poets.

The Haiku Reading Plan for Grades 3 – 4 is an example of a lesson that features poems from Montage.  The poems are typed in the plan for teachers to use easily, and the plan links to the Montage galleries online.

Jim Kacian is the Editor for The Haiku Foundation Education Resources.

The Haiku Foundation Education Resources

In 2012 and 2013, I worked with Jim Kacian and THF Board and resources to begin their Education Page.  The work of several teachers, poets, and scholars is featured there.

Currently I am working on new lessons.

Here are two examples of lessons published in 2013, for Kindergarten and Grades 1 – 2:

Haiku Plan for Kindergarten Students

Haiku Writing Plan for Grades 1 – 2

I look forward to sharing more in future posts.   My teaching experience is from early childhood to higher education.  I also volunteered in a nursing home.  So rewarding to share my teaching gifts and experience as a volunteer at The Haiku Foundation.  And I learn from many others there, and here as well, with our blogs.

Hope to help teachers, with their busy schedules, which I remember well!
