Weekly Writing Challenge: A Homeschool Tanka

Homeschooling is great

I know just how to do it

You get up each day

Read, write, and play lots of games

Hug your kids and love them most

 

This week’s writing challenge was to write a five line poem with 5-7-5-7-7 as the syllable pattern (a Tanka). If you’ve done Haiku with your kids, give Tanka a try. They’re really fun and short enough to not be a drag. And it’s a great opportunity to learn syllables!
