"Give Thanks" is a very short form of poetry known as haiku (sounds like "hi-coo").
Haiku originated in the country of Japan.
Today, haiku is written in many different languages with most haiku poets living in English-speaking countries.
There are several styles of haiku.
The most common haiku style contains 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, and 5 syllables in the third line.
Traditionally, haiku poetry was written about nature. But all that has changed. Haiku written today can be about anything!
Can you think of a haiku poem to write? Challenge yourself and your family to see who can come up with the best haiku poem!
You could also start a family collection of haiku poems and read then aloud once per year at your very own family "haiku" party.
After you make up your first haiku poem, you'll be thinking about your second poem, third poem...THEN you'll be off to the haiku races!
There are so many things we can be thankful for!
Are you healthy? Be thankful.
Are you happy? Be thankful.
Are you surrounded by people who love you?
There are many ways to show your thankfulness.
You can pray about it, write about it, talk about, draw about it, sing about it, and dance about it!
But it's important to know show it.
If you haven't checked out yesterday's Daily Yarn,
now is a good time to do so.
The Creative Corner project was making a Thankful Tree. It is a super simple project that is a lot of fun, easy, and meaningful.
Reflecting on all of the wonderful things and people in your life is a great way to warm your heart on a chilly November day!
