Acrostic Poems

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

[Introduction]    [Printable Worksheets]    [Example]

Introduction:

An acrostic poem is a very fun poem for kids.  Each acrostic poem has a topic idea running down the left side of the poem. Each letter in the topic word has a new thought that runs off the side from left to right and is relevant to the topic word.  The topic word is typically the title as well.

For example...

If you were writing an acrostic poem with the topic word "pumpkin" the title would be pumpkin and each line of the poem would start with one of the letters in the word pumpkin.
