Have fun with a Halloween theme as you teach your students to write acrostics., Everyone can be successful with this easy poetry format and you will all be excited to see the results. Post the poems on a Halloween bulletin board so students may share their creations. This 10-page packet includes handouts for 9 different acrostics using Halloween topic words, from easy (cat) to harder (Halloween). Most handouts have a sample acrostic and a fun picture to get students thinking. See my Introduction to Acrostics Lesson for a detailed plan and check out my other Acrostic Handouts for more fun and practice. Handouts are great for independent work, language arts centers, and partner projects.
