Directions For Use – My First Day Poem
> 1 x worksheet per student (available in black or color in letters).
> Pencil or pen for each student.
> Coloring in equipment for students.
1. Explain to students that an acrostic poem is when you list the letters used to make a word or phrase vertically. You then think of a word or phrase that starts with each letter and reflects your thoughts about the original word or phrase. You write these horizontally.
2. Model to students how to write an acrostic poem.
Students use the worksheet to write their own acrostic poem about their first day at school.
3. Students color in the letters (optional), draw a picture in the box to represent their first day and write their name on the line down the bottom of the page.
4. Students can take their poem home as a memento of their first day.
