In order to improve students' use of descriptive language, 4th graders are participating in a brief poetry unit to mix things up and to learn to infuse their writing with the most delicious and exquisite words and phrases possible.
The first kind of poetry practiced was Acrostic Poems about ourselves. It is easy to describe yourself. We discussed the importance of using long phrases or sentences on each line, writing with descriptive, VIVID language, and incorporating at least a few similes and metaphors.
Please share your Acrostic Poem about yourself!
