-Understand what an acrostic poem is and write his own

• Outcome: By the end of the lesson
you will know what an acrostic poem
is and write your own so that it can
be shared with the class.
• To start off, let’s take a look at some of those
features that makes poetry look and seem
different from prose.
• First of all, poetry is written in Lines and
Stanzas.
• Even though it’s a bit different, think of
these as Sentences and Paragraphs of
poetry!
•
Lines (sentences): rows of words
written across a page in a poem
•
Stanzas (paragraphs): A group of lines
that form the divisions of a poem. You
can usually recognize these by the spaces
between them.
Can you identify from the following two examples which is
verse and which is prose.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you
But roses always die
And violets shrivel away
But forever you will be as sweet
As you are today

What is an acrostic
poem?
Here is an example.
Pop Corns
Pop pop pop popping around
One after other making a sound
Pop pop popping I am having so much fun
Constantly shooting like the bullets of a gun
Originally so beautiful and white
Ridiculously addictive and a nice sight
No one can resist the sensational crunch
So delicious and appetizing when I munch
What is an acrostic
poem?
Answer: An acrostic poem uses
the letters in a topic word to
begin each line. All the lines of
the poem should relate to or
describe the topic word.
