I just love creating Acrostic Poems!!  I must admit, I tend to create one with my class for nearly every holiday, but I cannot help myself!  My students really get involved and bring a lot of unique ideas to the table when creating our Acrostic Poems.

What is an Acrostic Poem?

An Acrostic Poem simply requires the writer to choose a word in which they would like to write about and turn in into a vertical acronym.  Each letter will then have a describing word that stems horizontally from it.

In order to ‘hook’ your children, try creating an Acrostic Poem with their name.

Examples:

Joyful

Energetic

Nifty

From the 4th of July Pride Placemat~

Peace

Revolution

Independent

Determined

Excitement

There are NO LIMITS as to WHAT you and your child can turn into an Acrostic Poem!  Just brainstorm together and let the writing begin!

Happy Learning!
