Are your second grade students working on their creative writing skills? Do they like to talk about their personalities, special abilities, and home lives? Then they will love writing acrostic poems all about themselves! When I did this activity with my second graders during student teaching, I printed out pages with their names already written in an acrostic style (across the top, bottom, and down the left side of the paper). I then had the students fill in information about themselves for each letter of their name. You could have the students use their first name, last name, or both. You could also have the students share their completed poems with the rest of the class.
P.S. I will be putting up more lesson plans/activities ASAP from my student teaching experience and private tutoring experiences. Just look for Eduk8e =)
