Reflection: Online Resources Poetry: Writing Acrostic - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Students really enjoy writing Acrostic poems, especially about themselves, but one thing they struggle with is coming up with adjectives that begin with specific letters. If your students have access to technology in the classroom, it’s a good idea to show them how to use a search engine to find websites that can help. For example, if they can’t think of anything for Y, they can search for adjectives that begin with Y. There are many helpful websites that will list suggestions and students can choose from those.
