Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry and conveys an image or feeling. It has 17 syllables in three parts - 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables.  Haiku is based on the five senses. They are about things you can experience.  To do this effectively, it is good to rely on sensory description.  Haiku usually focuses on nature or seasons. 

American Haiku is less strict and focuses on the 17 syllable form.

Japanese haiku either presents one idea for the first two lines and then switch quickly to something else or do the same with the first line and last two.    It creates a leap between the two parts that creates an intuitive realization. Two parts sometimes contrast or compare.

One of the best ways to get children to write is to help them appreciate writing.  Reading stories with children develops language skills for writing.
