" Some days we paint with large bold strokes, like when someone finishes a book report or gets a piece of music ready for performing. Most of our days are softer in color. A little dab here a little dab there, following a rough draft, but allowing ourselves to paint outside the lines when we want too. " ~ Deborah Jean

The Far East and Haiku
These two poems are the result of a wonderful lesson about the Far East in Oak Meadow's World History/Fine Arts curriculum for seventh grade. There were several choices for a project in this lesson, but our seventh grader chose to write two poems in the haiku way. I love them both and wanted to share them with you! She's working on illustrations for each of them so for the sake of this posting I've included photos from our library.

Do you have a child with strong leanings towards writing? How do you encourage them?
