Second-graders Write Acrostic Poem

As part of their unit about poetry, second-graders in Cicely Knecht and Danielle Necessary’s classes learned about acrostic poems. An acrostic poem is created when certain letters in each line of the poem spells out a word or phrase. “We discussed acrostic poems, and then the children had the chance to come up with their own acrostic poems,” Knecht said. “As a group, we made a class acrostic poem using ‘Seven Hills.’ We had so much fun doing it and the poem turned out so nice!” Necessary’s class also wrote a poem using “Lotspeich!” Read the poems below.
