    Open answers.

    The first haiku is about With Sincere Intent; the second haiku is about The Strange Child.Notes for the teacher:This activity helps students to think about the stories they have read, and what they see as the themes, or points of interest in the story. It also helps them to practise the key vocabulary of the stories. There are no right or wrong answers for this activity, provided that the haiku accurately reflects some aspect of the story. For classroom work, students can work in pairs or

    small groups to write their haiku. When all the groups have finished, there can be a guessing competition, with other groups guessing which story each haiku is about. Other possibilities include a haiku recital (each group in turn reads out their haiku to the class), and a poster display.

    If students are doing their reading at home, writing a haiku is a creative way of showing they have read

    and understood the story. Haiku can be written in students own reading diaries, or shared with the class. A good way is to keep a big Reviews Book in the classroom, and each student writes their haiku in the book for other students to read.

    Haiku dont rhyme or scan, but must keep to the 5 / 7 / 5 syllable rule. They can be one long sentence, or a number of short sentences, or just phrases. They can be funny, or sad. Avoid using characters names. These examples for the other stories in this book show some different ways language can be used in haiku.

    The Evening TrainHe waits for his son,potatoes ready to cook,but help does not come.

    ComplicityThe young girl watches,and her mother runs, laughing, to catch a chicken.

    The Luck of FourUnlucky number.He gives away the ticket,but the bad luck stays.

    Chinna and MuthuRain. What will bring rain?Buy the priest with two good fields,and let the goat go.

    TreasonFlowers in my hair,bangles on my wrists, a gatethat shuts behind me.

    The DeceiversHe uses a name to deceive; he forgets thattwo can play that game.
