Acrostic poems use each letter of a given word to begin the lines of a poem. In this case the word is GRATITUDE. All lines of the poem relate to the topic word.
Acrostics can be simple or complex, which make them easily adaptable to all ages and skill levels.
Feel free to ditch the poetry exercise altogether. Have students challenge themselves to simply create a list, to think of as many words for each letter as they can that describe what they are grateful for.
