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.





From the 4th of July Pride Placemat~






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!
