Valentines Day Acrostic Poem Lesson

Practice Poetry-Writing Through This Valentines Day Acrostic Poem

By

Are you in need of a quick Valentines Day poetry lesson plan to share with your students tomorrow?

Consider practicing acrostic poetry with your students.

  • Model the format of acrostic poems with your students. Work together to write a collective acrostic poem on the whiteboard.
  • Give your students a Valentines-related word list so that they can write their own acrostic poem. Consider: love, February, heart, friends, appreciate, chocolate, red, hero, and happy. Discuss the meaning of these words and the importance of expressing appreciate to loved ones on the Valentines Day holiday.
  • Give your students time to write their acrostic poems. Circulate and offer guidance as needed.
  • If you have time, allow the students to illustrate their poems. This project makes a great bulletin board display for February, especially if you do it a few weeks ahead of time!
Suggest that your students give their acrostic poems to family members as Valentines Day gifts.
