Reflection: Pacing Reading Acrostics - Poetry of Letters - Section 6: Write One Yourself


Extra activity-I had planned to do this but we just ran out of time. I showed this website to the kids and did one student example. Several of them planned to use it at home.

  • "Let me show you a cool website that you can use to make acrostics.  I'll use an example of yours. I'll open the Acrostic poem website and I'll enter the topic."
  • "Type in words on the 'brainstorming' page'."  
  • This is how I sounded when I was making an acrostic on the computer.
  • "Now look to see what other words you are missing letters for and add those. You can save the work or print it out."
