Last year Chloe wrote a staff favorite: an acrostic poem about pizza (and zebras). Acrostic poems are popular poetry forms taught in schools, because the structure is easy to grasp.
So...how do you write an acrostic poem?
An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.
To challenge older students, try having them create an acrostic poem where the last letters in the line spell out a word or phrase.
