Acrostic Poems


Acrostic poems are written by choosing a word to go vertically down a page. Like this…







Then, you think of words or phrases beginning with each letter. Like this…


So much fun

Nearly slipped over 

Our snowman is the best

Watch out for the snowball! 


Your task is to write your own Acrostic Poem. You can use my template below or you can think of your own Winter Word.


Start by writing your word down the side in CAPITAL LETTERS.


Make sure that your sentences are about the word you have written down the side! Use the word mat to give you some ideas. 





Write another one! Read your poem to an adult and see if they can work out what your word is that you've written down the side!
