The white and purple crocus are the first to bloom in my New England garden. That's my signal to start Haiku poetry with my students. The little crocus flowers look very fragile, but they're strong enough to poke their heads above wintry snowfalls in March. The images in this packet are my original drawings and photos. Websites are given so that students have a visual of modern day Haiku and Haiga. Instructions are given. These make lovely class displays to welcome spring.
