How to Write an Acrostic Poem<br />By: Julia Waldinger<br />
Tips<br />1) Choose a subject. <br />2) Brainstorm for material that relates to the subject. <br />3) Write the title vertically on the page, one letter per line. <br />4) Make sure each line starts with the corresponding letter. <br />5) Every line must relate back to the subject. <br />
Rule 1<br />Just as it is with all poetry, the subject of the acrostic poem is the most important part. In acrostic poetry, it's even more special because it uses the letters of the subject word to form the body of the poem. You can write about anything in the world; you simply take the name of that thing and turn it into a poem using the letters of that thing<br />
Rule 2<br />Each line is a description about the subject<br />word. It's one of the reasons they are so much<br />fun for students to write, because they are easy,<br />and students get to write about themselves or a<br />friend.<br />
