We have reading group again this week. We meet twice a month and explore a new genre each month. It’s casual, and easy, and the kids and adults can share what they wish. No expectations. Just my kind of commitment!

This month is poetry and humor. I’d mention it is National Poetry Month, but really? National anythings are such a crock and waste of paper and breath. But anyways…

We focused on poetry and as one of our activities last week, we learned a method for creating haiku and then wrote and illustrated our haiku.

Here is my simple haiku inspired by gardening. Yes. I draw and color like a kindergartner. And I am good with that.
