Poet-Mom Michelle Bautista just shared she "survived" a hay(na)ku workshop for kindergartners at Glenview Elementary! The survivor said:
"They shared their poems then their classmates had to guess what they wrote about. For kids that needed extra help, wrote words on post it notes that they could move around."

The use of post-its was genius--it made the process like a manual version of those magnetic poetry kits!  This, of course, is ALSO what hay(na)ku is for -- to bring love to poetry and poetry to love!

Thanks Michelle! The sample poem:
Make dolphins you; 
whoosh wavy; 

Sounds great to me!!!

  1. I love the idea of writing on post-it notes it is the way I’ve been writing sort of by sending myself emails on my phone. I miss you. Love
