This lesson is a more advanced take on acrostic poetry. Students begin with a "level 1" acrostic poem which is the traditional poem with one word for each letter of a vertically written word. The lesson continues with a "level 2" acrostic poem which requires students to write a word vertically, then write one continuous sentence using the letters in said word. The final, "level 3" acrostic poem requires students to write alliterating similes using the letters in the vertically written word. Each page includes directions and sample poems.
