Use these handouts for your Acrostic Poem lesson! This lesson also taught students/refreshed their memories about adjectives, verbs and nouns. Students are asked to keep track of their use of these parts of speech when writing their poems through a short checklist (1 adjective, 2 verbs, and 3 nouns). Poems include PUMPKIN, HARVEST, AUTUMN, APPLE, ACORN, and SPOOKY.
This lesson is, obviously, best used for the fall and around Halloween but can be changed using words from any season, holiday, book or unit of study.
Also can accompany the Diamante Poem Handout and the "Acrostic & Diamante Poem Lesson Outline", as they were originally created to be taught together. Topics/words on the poems are similar and parts of speech are required to compose all of the poems.
